This is part of a series of artist’s sound art interventions on Radio 4, called Open Air.
I happened to hear this when it was on and thought it was wonderful and disconcerting moment of radio. It wasn’t introduced or given explanation, it just launched into a disjointed mash-up of Radio 4 voices.
It’s one of the things that I love about Radio 4: it’s ability to stand back, chop up and laugh at what makes it…Radio 4. Have a listen (even if you don’t usually listen to Radio 4, the oddness and artistry shines through!)
