Each episode includes a mixture of interviews, sound commissions and regular features covering artist-led activity around the UK. Series Two was produced at The NewBridge Project, Newcastle for the Practice Makes Practice residency I did in March 2019, and features music, sound pieces and interviews from studio and associate NBP members.

    Series 2 - Episode 8

    The penultimate episode of Series 2 (!!) is a conversation between Ilana, Hannah, Helen, Lorna, Marwa and Katy who were all involved in artist Bobby Baker's Great and Tiny War project last year. The project, commissioned as part of 14-18-NOW, a series of World War I centenary art commissions, took place in an immersive installation in a house on Sidney Grove in Newcastle and featured an audio guided tour. Several of the women in this recording acted as hosts on the tour of the house. The project aimed to highlight the role of women during wartime and the impact of war on mental health. 

    "Great & Tiny War serves as a monument to their unacknowledged private struggles and personal strength, and will resonate with anyone whose family has been touched by conflict."

    Series 2 - Episode 4

    This episode features three sound pieces from TOT-TOT-TOTALALAZOLA, an exhibition by TOTALLER curated by Lesley Guy at The NewBridge Project in January-February 2019. In order of listening - 'Mithrayer Meditation', 'Solstice Meditation' and 'Totaller Deinitiation'. 
    "TOTALLER has a shared belief around the aesthetic as a destructive, progressively utopian and totalising force. The group is composed of four members – Lesley Guy, Dale Holmes, Lea Torp Nielsen and Chris Fielder. The group attempts to deliver a series of aesthetic shocks through taking risks with categories such as credibility, beauty and style, exploring approaches to these without irony or self-consciousness. They aim to work within the bounds of a new or imagined Dark Age, a space for making that is free from anxiety and allows for new forms of creation."
    Lesley Guy is an artist, writer and educator based in Newcastle, UK.
