Astral Jazz – Tom Beesley

Astral/Cosmic/Spiritual Jazz emerged in the late sixties, as various musicians who had played with John Coltrane took his ideas and pushed them into new territory. This selection brings together the sounds of Pharoah Sanders, Don Cherry, Lonnie Liston Smith and Alice Coltrane.

Degi-Degi – Don Cherry
Expansions – Lonnie Liston Smith and the Cosmic Echoes
Blue Nile – Alice Coltrane
The Creator Has A Master Plan – Pharoah Sanders

Female Voice – Linda Green

I have chosen ‘Female Voice’ as it gives me an opportunity to play and share tracks by powerful singers whose music I really enjoy and listen to a lot. Ranging from the 1980s to the present day and from Joan Armatrading to The Unthanks, these sounds bring back fond memories from the last thirty years and create a great kitchen karaoke.

Rolling In The Deep – Adele
Back To Black – Amy Winehouse
Put Your Records On – Corinne Bailey Rae
Moonshine Freeze – This Is The Kit
Horizon – Aldous Harding
Love And Affection – Joan Armatrading
Magpie – The Unthanks
Strong – London Grammar

Ornithaudiology – Helen Steward

The sounds of birds are some of the most evocative in the natural world. Birdsong is often what we most notice and pay attention to, but in fact it represents only a small fraction of the world of bird sound – which encompasses contact calls; alarm calls; various forms of drumming (woodpeckers, snipe); wing-clapping (wood pigeons); booming (bitterns); whistling (wigeon and many other ducks); squealing (water rail); and more. I’ve tried to include a wide range of these auditory phenomena in this set. All the birds sampled can be heard in the British Isles (at the right time of year); and many can be found in Ilkley!

Film & Music Play: Orchestrations of joyful doing – Clare Dearnaley

Music either leads or compliments my films, I’ve chosen tracks for mood, lyrical content, propaganda, to give you room to think or simply to make you smile.
Audio tracks include: Public Service Broadcasting, The Clash, Nightmares on Wax, Who da Funk, Jenny Scheinman, Julie Byrne and a live recording of a young local band called Altum.
Visuals are from recent film shoots, as a series of little loose vignettes. Art workshops, dancers and 15 and 16 year old musicians to give a few examples. I’ve been focusing on children and young adults caught in their joy and absorption of performing creative acts. This is mostly research footage, I hope it will go on to help me make a longer film – fingers crossed!

Progress – Public Service Broadcasting
A Ride With Polly Jean – Jenny Scheinman
Beating – Altum
Lost in the Supermarket – The Clash
Shiny Disco Balls – Who Da Funk
You Wish – Nightmares on Wax
Natural Blue – Julie Byrne
Best Team (Joshua James Remix) – Rozi Plain
Imagination – Brayd3n

John Lydon – Tim Davis

John Lydon’s singing has been described by Captain Sensible as ‘old man Steptoe moaning’ and by Jah Wobble as ‘a mixture of Withnail and Kenneth Williams’. But from the Sex Pistols to Public Image he has always been angry.

Rise – Public Image Ltd.
Shoom – Public Image Ltd.
Bodies – Sex Pistols
Public Image – Public Image Ltd.
World Destruction – Time Zone, John Lydon, Afrika Bambaataa
This Is Not A Love Song – Public Image Ltd.

Her first influence on her singing came when she used to run errands for the girls in a near-by brothel in return for listening to jazz musicians such as Louis Armstrong. She originally went to audition at a club to dance but didn’t get through but then was asked if she sang, and that was her break. In 1938 she appeared at Cafe Society in New York and introduced one of her best-known songs, Strange Fruit, a poem written to music by Abel Meerpool as a protest song.

Terrible Angels: The music of CocoRosie – Phil Hardy

“US freak-folk and fractured dream-pop band based around the half-Cherokee sisters Sierra and Bianca Casady. During the last decade, the duo have crafted precious music that frequently spirals off into pretentiousness, yet boasts a fierce beauty at its cluttered core.”
Gig review in The Guardian, 6 August 2012

21:09 Rainbowwarriors – CocoRosie

Japanese Innovation – Gary Winters

With strong routes in the western post-war avant-garde explorations of minimalism and drone this is a sampler of essential underground Japanese recording artists from the last 50 years. Concentrating primarily on electronic and noise (Japanoise), of course this is not a complete survey of ground-breaking sonic experimentation, but just one blossom on a very large cherry tree. “If by noise you mean uncomfortable sound, then pop music is noise to me.” – Merzbow

I Love You, You Big Dummy: The music of Captain Beefheart – Phil Hardy

“Beefheart once described his thing to an uncomprehending radio interviewer as ‘music to dematerialise the catatonia’. His style was rhythm and blues-based but completely unorthodox in its approach to structure, rhythm and key.”
Obituary in The Guardian, 18 December 2010

Harry Smith Anthology – Gary Winters

Harry Smith was an artist at the centre of the mid 20th-century American avant-garde. Although best known as a filmmaker and musicologist, he described himself as a painter, and spoke of his art in alchemical and cosmological terms. In 1952 Folkways issued Smith’s Anthology of American Folk Music, comprising of recordings issued between 1927 and 1932. The 84-track anthology is recognised as a seminal inspiration for the folk music revival of the 1950s/60s. Smith spent his final years as ‘shaman in residence’ at Naropa Institute. Shortly before his death in 1991 he is quoted “I’m glad to say my dreams came true. I saw America changed by music.”

20:40 KAISHA HASHI NAGAR HAI SARKAR MUSTUFAKA – Anish Navab Kadari
20:50 Ankhian Udeek Diya – Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan

Rodriguez – Emily Muirhead

I first fell in love with the music of Sixto Rodriguez in the 1990s. I was told that he had shot himself on stage in the 1960s, after his first album had bombed in the USA. Then in 2012 I watched a film called Searching for Sugarman which documented the search for Rodriguez. He had become the sound of the Apartheid in the 1990s and a South African cultural phenomenon, but like me, they all thought he had committed suicide. His music is unique and timeless and I am so happy this amazingly modest and talented musician is now enjoying the recognition that he deserves.

20:59 Sugar Man – Rodriguez
21:03 Big in South Africa – CNN Report
21:05 First performance in South Africa – Rodriguez
21:04 I Wonder – Rodriguez

21:53 Summer Dress – Red House Painters
21:55 Up To My Neck In You – Mark Kozelek

French Synth Pop – Joe Johnson

The celebrity soundbites of a typical ‘I remember the 90s’ TV show would probably suggest that the latter part of the decade was all about Radiohead’s melancholic rock and the UK’s post-Britpop hangover, yet across the channel the mood was notably celebratory. The blueprint of French house, or ‘French Touch’ as it is also known, can be found in the disco bass lines and filtered samples of Daft Punk’s early singles, such as Around the World. However not all French electronica from this period was aimed at the dance floor; the atmospheric, jazz influenced sounds of St Germain and Sebastien Tellier, combined with Air’s downbeat acoustic ballads, certainly prove that the genre wasn’t as mindless or repetitive as one might recall.

21:58 The Operation – Charlotte Gainsbourg

12k Label – Tom Beesley

Label boss Taylor Deupree established 12k in Brooklyn, New York in1997. The label ‘fuses elements from ambient and acoustic experimentation with carefully arranged digital textures and associative micro-noises, the label’s aesthetics revolve around a precisely-outlined, yet deeply emotional concoction of the technological and the organic.’

Northern Soul – Georgie Richmond

Starting in the early 70’s, Northern Soul was a scene that thrived on the rare and the obscure. After Motown’s success, small start-ups across America attempted to replicate the sound, on a budget, often making one off records by artists who never recorded again. This provided a rich seam of rare vinyl waiting to be discovered by die hard soul lovers in Northern England.

Keith Jarrett – Shaun Hutchinson

This set is 8 tracks from Keith Jarrett’s 1985 ‘Spirits’ album. He made this album alone in his home studio playing all instruments: vocals, guitar, glockenspiel, soprano saxophone, recorder, piano, tabla, flutes and percussion. This is Jarrett’s most personal album of boundless expression, moods range from jubilation to a burrowing pensiveness, but always with an ear attuned to catharsis! I met him after a gig at the Royal Festival hall in the 90’s and asked him to sign ‘Spirits’ but he refused saying ‘I don’t think I can sign that’ and walked off, as he felt (like Stravinsky’s Rite Of Spring), he was merely a vessel the music passed through.

Spoken Word – Jeremy Lewis

From the words of the beat generation scene, to the word on the street (and much in between), the Spoken Word has always been flowing alongside the mainstream. Taunting, tempting, twisting genres. Double entendres. Jazz collaboration. Syncopation. Hip Hop (Don’t Stop!)

Chumbawamba – Jeremy Lewis

There will come a time (perhaps it is already upon us), when people will remember only three things about the Chumbas – Their Greatest Hit (there’s only one!), attacking John Prescott at the Brits, and the foul-mouthed, whisky-swigging, high-kicking nun (now to be found mostly on the BBC) who smoked cigarettes and plied the front row of audiences with spirits. How times change. Lest we forget, revisit the best of 30 years of anti-Thatcher, anti-Establishment, anti-Fascist fun. From anarcho-punk, through post-rave experimental synth-pop, to its latter-day incarnation as a touring band of agit-pop folk troubadours, this was Chumbawamba.

Simon East

In a reference to Tom’s geodesic dome structures the visuals are a film about Buckminster Fuller’s Union Tank Car Dome. The music is a selection of tracks by English electronic duo Plaid (they also record as The Black Dog). The organic sound of the music and their avoidance of standard dance music time signatures struck me as a good pairing with Fuller’s domes and Tom’s sculpture.

The visuals to this set were A Necessary Ruin: The Story of Buckminster Fuller and the Union Tank Car Dome: https://vimeo.com/album/4589939/video/13966041

Gary Winters

“Modernity is the transient, the fleeting, the contingent; it is one half of art, the other being the eternal and the immovable.” – Charles Baudelaire. I have chosen a suite of pieces ranging across the period broadly categorised in terms of modernity. These works were a radical challenge to the past; maybe they still are, even if there are indicators of a more palatable, known, popular culture.

The visuals to this set were several videos by Sam Taylor Wood: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pXPP8eUlEtk&t=14s https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PyUWJqExw00 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H21ypJb7KJk

John Gamble

My selections are played alongside the homemade films of people breaking into and exploring abandoned buildings. These explorers are drawn to these spaces, capturing them as they are precariously positioned on the edge of failure. The selected sound artists use the process of tape loops with Basinski repeatedly running tape over the head, and allowing it to deteriorate, leading to a beautiful collapse.

The visuals to this set were videos of abandoned buildings taken by John.
