    This week, we revisit a series of podcasts from June 2018 where we speak to a DJ, a writer and a record label, all showcasing their love and obsession with Japanese music. In the third and final episode in the series, we focus in on some of the pioneering Japanese music from the 1990s with Ian F Martin, author of 'Quit Your Band! Musical Notes from the Japanese Underground', as he takes us into the live music scene with some of Japan's most experimental and noise-based artists. 


    This series was originally made to coincide with a series of gigs, featuring artists from the Japanese underground scene responsible for genre defining music from the groundbreaking electronics of Yellow Magic Orchestra to the sonic arts of Ryoji Ikeda and quirky Pop of Mariah. 


    Produced by Ben Eshmade.

    From the Archive: Efterklang - Leaves: The Colour of Falling (February 2017)

    We are looking back into our archive to February 2017 and rediscovering an interview with Danish band, Efterklang. In 2012, the band's album Pyramidia dazzled our ears and minds with its exploration of an Arctic ghost town. And it was four years later, they reemerged with something perhaps no one was expecting - an opera. Ben Eshmade meets the band to hear more about Leaves: The Colour of Falling which was performed at the Barbican in February 2017.

    In this week’s episode of Sound Unbound, James R Gaines, author of ‘Evening in the Palace of Reason’, discusses the famed meeting between Bach and Frederick the Great in 1747, where the worlds of religion and spirituality collided with the rationality of early Enlightenment and the resulting fugue, Bach’s ‘Musical Offering’.
