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.

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