BBC Radio Late Junction: Rubbish Music

It’s not just any old rubbish this week on Late Junction: Jennifer Lucy Allan dumpster dives to share music made from and inspired by the world of waste, rummaging through her bins to bring you music from instruments made of recycled materials and odes to waste management.

As London’s Design Museum launches their exhibition asking how we can reinvent our relationship with waste, Late Junction explores how artists have made music with and about literal rubbish. Embracing the concept of ‘one man’s rubbish is another man’s treasure’, there’ll be plenty of music made by instruments created from things others have thrown away, from the likes of the Congolese eco-friendly collective Fulu Miziki, sculptor of found objects Lonnie Holley, and the plastic-obsessed electronic duo Matmos. There’ll be field recordings from a Materials Recovery Facility in Massachusetts, as well as the sounds of British post-punk trio Trash Kit. Plus brand new releases elsewhere in the show, including György Ligeti reimagined by a chorus of teenagers with composer Marina Rosenfeld and fuzzy ambience from Nigerian sound artist and violist Ibukun Sunday.
