Happy and sonorous new year Radia lovers! We inaugurate 2015 with a bang thanks to Resonance FM broadcast Remote Performances*, the Resonance Radio Orchestra and artists London Fieldworks presenting Second Sketch for Ascent and Descent.
About Remote Performances...For one week in August 2014, twenty specially commissioned artist performances and programmes created with local residents were broadcast live from Outlandia, a unique artists' field-station in Glen Nevis, Lochaber, Scotland.
Second Sketch for Ascent and Descent was written, arranged and produced by Ed Baxter, and features Ed Baxter (bass guitar), Tam Dean Burn (voice), Ewen Campbell (whistling), Miriam Iowerth (xylophone), Peter Lanceley (electric guitar, singing), Charlie Menzies (fiddle), and Michael Umney (piano). In November 2014 American country singer Bob Cheevers was asked to read a script for a new work. At the end of that recording he improvised a fragmentary text which – since it fitted perfectly with the theme, unbeknownst to Bob - it's been combined with the other Remote Performances material as A Secret Postscript.
