BCM 10th Anniversary Mix

Paul Jepson (course leader) selected:

Pink Floyd - Time - "the line "no one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun" was real motivation for lads in my day."

Radiohead - Exit Music (For A Film) - "this reminds me of when I was working on the Sumatran frontier and writing up my DPhil. The second part where the guitar has the buzz of a chainsaw and the anguish in the vocals captured my mood at the time."

BCM 10th Anniversary Mix

Rob St. John (09/10) selected Nalle 'Songthrush' and Richard Skelton 'Noon Hill Wood':

"Nalle is the project of Hanna Tuulikki, a Glasgow based artist who works with the overlaps between birdsong, language and traditional song, focusing at the moment on Canna in the Western Isles for Away With The Birds - http://awaywith-thebirds.tumblr.com/.

Richard Skelton is a Lancastrian musician who records outside in the landscape, evoking the Pennine moors and their variety of life through his rich, droning recordings.

I also included snippets of Annea Lockwood and Chris Watson in tying the mix together as they're two of my favourite sound recordists

BCM 10th Anniversary Mix

Jared Margulies (09/10) selected Cass McCombs - 'What Isn't Nature?' because 'you know, not to be too Latourian, but I think Cass is got it right when he asks the basic question, what isn't nature? '

BCM 10th Anniversary Mix

Julie-Beth McCarthy (09/10) selected:

1. Solveig's Laugh - This sound the one of the purest and most joyous I know. Nothing has ever inspired me more than the sound of my baby girl's happiness exploding out of her.

2. Saltwater Joys - This song is home to me, no matter where I am. It embodies all I love about the land where I was born and touches a number of my conservation inspirations - the sea, the quiet solitude of a rocky coastline, the urge to protect your home, the love of the people who live there.

3. Dies Irae - I love how big and grand religious music can be. Though I am not religious, I find it is often best able to express my awe for the natural world, which is great indeed.
