Robert Worby introduces the first of two programmes from Cut and Splice, the two-day festival of experimental music and sound art which this year was curated and performed by the new-music ensemble Distractfold. The event took place earlier this month and was staged at Hallé St Peter's, a Grade II-listed deconsecrated church in the former industrial district of Ancoats, Manchester.

Distractfold's programming aims to reveal the hidden sonorities within instruments and objects through processing, and explore the temporal and spatial dislocation of sound through loudspeakers. Tonight we hear acoustic and spatially diffused electroacoustic works by Steven Kazuo Takasugi, Denis Smalley, Fabrice Fitch, Helena Gough and Mauricio Pauly. And from nearby Hallé at St Michael's we listen in on some of the sound installations that were on offer throughout the weekend including works by Adam Basanta and Christina Kubisch, whose Electrical Walks has also been specially recreated as a binaural online experience for BBC Radio 3 listeners.

Steven Kazuo Takasugi: The Man Who Couldn't Stop Laughing - music theatre for amplified quartet and playback (2012-14, UK Premiere)

Denis Smalley: Empty Vessels - spatially diffused electroacoustic work (1997)

Fabrice Fitch: Agricola IXe - for bass clarinet and string trio (2016)

Helena Gough: Silt - spatially diffused electroacoustic work (2007)

Mauricio Pauly: Charred Edifice Shining - for amplified string trio with performative electronics (2017)

Elsa Justel: Gwerz - 8-channel electroacoustic work (2002)
