BBC Radio 3 Late Junction: Songs for Heavy Weather

Jennifer Lucy Allan shares music inspired by heavy weather, from noise musician Daniel Menche’s recordings of stormy skies in Oregon, to experimental guitarist Derek Bailey’s accompaniment to a raindance. 

There’ll also be jazz pieces reflecting on clouds from South Africa’s Letta Mbulu, collaged weather reports from composer Ron Geesin, and soundscape compositions from Hildegard Westerkamp on the west coast of British Columbia.

Elsewhere there’s new releases from pedal steel guitarist Susan Alcorn and her quintet and Manchester-based sound artist Kelly Jayne Jones.
