NTS Radio w/ Edmund Finnis

It was an honour to have one of my favourite modern composers, Edmund Finnis, join us in the studio for Kit Radio this week. I first found Ed’s music via the violinist Aisha Orazbayeva, and her spiralling, sighing rendition of ‘Sister‘ with Lucy Railton. More exploration uncovered his transportive electronic panorama ‘Colour Field Painting‘, and the nostalgic, fleeting, plundered music of ‘TOSCA‘. All wonderful.

Unsurprisingly, Edmund’s song choices were unreal, and I struggled to keep up. Stand-out moments were Hans Abrahamsen’s preposterously complex acoustic techno ‘Schnee’, and the hyper-intimate glacial drone of Yannis Kyriakides. Edmund was also very at ease and eloquent on the mic, and offered some insight on the fleeting colour of music, perfect acoustics and why basslines should be like a nice carpet. Thanks dude.
