On Saturday February 1st, St. Brigid’s Day, as part of the Imbolc celebrations at Soundart Radio, I will present a selection of new works by sound, word, and music artists. First Spark is Soundart’s annual festival of radio in all its possibilities, scheduled at the Celtic festival of Imbolc, to welcome the first signs of Spring. Works will include a collage composition by People Like Us, a recording of a work from The Story of O project by Emmanuelle Waeckerle, a new recording featuring text by Mark Greenwood, a recording of a live improvisation by Olchar Lindsann, works for radio by Sue Coulson, and a new text I have written for the occasion. The broadcast can be listened to live on 102.5fm in the Totnes and Dartington area; you can also listen online at soundartradio.org.uk.
