At 6.30pm this evening Conal Blake presents Magnetic Blues:
Since moving to London in 2017 I have found multiple musical objects on the street, including:
• a bag of cassettes containing surveillance recordings and Jamaican, Mediterranean & British pop music
• a box of classical, pop and story telling records
• a portable record player
For this 30 minute radio programme I have chopped, slowed down, looped and simply played back some of my favourite moments on these tapes and records, with the help of a sampler, a cheap FX pedal and other found objects.
