Elizabeth Alker's Unclassified on BBC Radio 3
26th April 2018
Elizabeth Alker's new BBC Radio 3 series, Unclassified, takes listeners on a sonic exploration into uncharted musical territory, delving further into an emerging scene of composers and performers who feel at home in both a traditional concert hall and a grimy basement venue. It sounds marvellous!
"These artists are unburdened by tradition and genre and they're meeting the demands of a growing international audience who have eclectic tastes and open minds. Join Elizabeth as she follows musicians such as Gabriel Prokofiev, Johann Johannsson, Flying Lotus, Bonobo, Nils Frahm and Christina Vantzou from electronic dance clubs onto windswept Nordic landscapes, into the world of art house cinema and on stage in some of the world's most reputable concert halls.
Disconnect from all devices and escape into soothing ambient soundscapes, rewire your brain for gorgeous electronic experimentation and let surprising collaborations transport you into as yet undiscovered sound worlds. We're hoping to get completely lost. This is music by composers who are rewriting the rules and changing the way we think about contemporary and traditional forms of music."
