Goodwin Sands Radiogram: Magical Mystery Tour (2019)

7/18/2019
More
Another special live show from Free Range. The first live programme was such a success that I decided to do it again. This episode might be the funniest and most touching yet. It's certainly the most sweary. As before, the programme's interviews were prerecorded and loaded into a sequencer to be played out live for the audience while improvising musicians interpreted the spoken word material for the audience in real time. They hadn't heard the material before and had no idea about the...

Goodwin Sands Radiogram: Transmission (live special) (2018)

7/18/2019
More
A special live edition of the Radiogram as an experiment. When you are a podcast/radio producer you are in charge of pretty much everything. You do the interviews, you edit the recordings, you choose the music and sound, and you choose how it is applied, and you control the mood and meaning of the whole programme. What if it was different? What if I gave up my power as a producer? What if, as my thesis suggests, the process could be more like music – open to interpretation, collaborative,...

Hibernus Opus Continuum (2019)

7/18/2019
More
'Hibernus opus continuum' is a deliberate mistranslation of 'winter work continues', 'continuum' being a reference to the piece of the same name by Sophie Stone. Originally a 90-minute longform composition and performance piece, an exact 30 minutes of Continuum was selected unedited to form the 'bed' (or background) of this documentary and the interviews were cut to the music – a reversal of the usual feature documentary-making process. The piece is a deliberately experimental podcast...

Nota Bene: Canterbury Christ Church University and the CPBRA (2018)

7/18/2019
More
Within the Arts and Humanities school at Canterbury Christ Church University exists the CPBRA – the Centre for Practice-Based Research in the Arts. It is a central repository for creative output across different departments and disciplines: all staff and postgrad students' work is catalogued there and it is a source of much pride by the university. This feature documentary podcast interviews three musicians about their work for the centre in the 2017/18 academic year. The compositional...

Seaside Towns, Seaside Frowns: Margate, Twenty-Seventeen (2017)

7/18/2019
More
Poet Sam Simmons takes us on a guided tour of Margate meeting fellow artist Polly and a raft of other people along the way. Interspersed with his poetry both longform and snappy, Sam recalls his time in the town and reflects on how it has changed since the Turner Contemporary gallery opened in 2011. 'I've always thought of Margate as a bit damaged,' he muses. This piece was written for the Composition, Improvisation and Sonic Art Research Group festival in the spring of 2017 held at the...

Goodwin Sands Radiogram: Is It In My Head? (2016)

7/18/2019
More
The Goodwin Sands Radiogram is a feature documentary podcast series which is conceptually designed to sound like it is broadcast from a pirate station aboard a wrecked light vessel on the Goodwin Sands sandbank in the English Channel. Using radio static and the received pronunciation of The Announcer, the series plays with 'old-time' radio tropes as the listener is 'tuned through' a series of interviews with people in the area of south east Kent, the broadcast range of the beached...
