Missed this but I have checked and you can still listen to the show on NTS and here is the link for FRACTAL MEAT ON A SPONGY BONE http://www.ntsradio.co.uk/shows/fractalmeat/
Studio guest on Friday 20th MArch will be Liz Helman: tune into NTS from 8am to 10am.
Liz Helman is a London-based artist and independent curator working across different media, including photography, video and sound. Manipulating her own recorded and found sound, she constructs atmospheric sound pieces, and in all her time-based media works, she explores the psychological and emotional attachment to place and dwelling. Journeying between recollection and reality, she challenges format driven orthodoxies, fragmenting and layering image and sound to consider the experience of dislocation and displacement.

As the About page states,
“A Closer Listen was founded on the principles of kindness, communication, and partnership. We also aim to be a resource for the discovery of new music. Here at A Closer Listen, a bedroom artist is just as likely to get reviewed as a major label artist. We hope that if you enjoy a particular release on our site, you’ll click on the category (for example, “Field Recording and Soundscape”) to find related releases. You may be surprised to find new names and amazing underground sounds; your next favourite album may be only a click away. In addition, we’ve prepared a steady stream of exclusive mixes for your listening pleasure. We love doing what we do, and we hope you’ll love what you see and hear!”
I thought that it might be best to put together short Digests of about 5 or 6 items that may be of interest on this blog. This will be easier for you to read and keep up with and for me to put together. So here goes…
I have often wondered…
WHAT IS SOUND ART?
This is part two in a season I am putting together about Sound Art and the women who have been and are, at the forefront of this highly eclectic and diverse art form.
