Leafcutter John NTS Radio session

NTS Radio w/ Leafcutter John in Session

Another live session, this week with one of my musical heroes – Leafcutter John of Polar Bear, Melt Yourself Down and so many other great projects. At our request, John had brought his latest home-made musical contraption in tow, a small box which picks up light signals and converts them into song. It was an honour to record John nonchalantly prodding this perspex container with bike lights and a sparkler, and to hear the resultant spacious, dreamy wonder. We also had a good chat about the Photophone (as I have dubbed it), and exchanged some tunes. Thank you John! Enjoy.
