Linda Catlin Smith's Wilderness is an exploration of orchestral colour, with the possibilities of the orchestra itself a kind of wilderness.
Mâche's award winning Kassandra from 1977, is typical of the composer's investigations into sounds in nature, zoomusicology and human speech patterns.
Legendary Australian trio The Necks improvise with Ilan Volkov and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, with an exploration into the zones between improvisation, post-rock, jazz, ambient, and orchestral music.
Saxophonist Roscoe Mitchell has been at the vanguard of jazz and improvisation for half a century, notably as a member of the Art Ensemble of Chicago.
Yarn/Wire is a New York-based percussion and piano quartet, playing new music written for them by Andrew MacIntosh.
Presented by Robert Worby and Kate Molleson, who discuss the music with the artists involved.
