This week we play host to our monthly guest slot from America and sample electronic music made by participants in next week’s Iran UK Sonics residency.

From December 9th five selected participants will visit the UK for the first time to take part in a two week residency programme. They’ll be collaborating with London College of Communication Sound Art and Design graduates and veteran electro-acoustic improviser Keith Rowe, an original member of the hugely influential group AMM. Performing with them and co-producing is Veryan Weston, a key composer and free jazz pianist on the UK sonic arts scene.
The performance takes place on December 13th, at Queen Elizabeth Hall Front Room, Southbank Centre from 6pm and is free. Today we build on last week’s show and continue to preview the event by sampling tracks from the emerging musicians who will be coming over.
