ARCHAEOLOGY OF THE EAR is a series of hour length listening programmes exploring historic places and artefacts that have sonorous or musical stories to tell. Created by musician and composer Chris Cundy each episode features interviews with a range of historians, crafts people, subject experts, musicians, performers and songwriters

Accompanied by archivist Rebecca Phillips, Chris Cundy returns to Gloucester Cathedral in the South West of England to look for a whispering gallery hidden amongst its labyrinth of medieval staircases and passageways. We follow a story about how the unusual acoustics of the whispering gallery inspired Daphne Oram’s vision behind the BBC Radiophonic Workshop established in the 1950’s to popularise electronic music. Featuring narratives read by Ladan Hussein (aka Cold Specks) and Adam Horovitz

In partnership with Gloucester Cathedral and 1381.online and supported by Help Musicians UK and Arts Council England

Tracklist

Playing tracks by Daphne Oram, Chris Cundy (feat. Rhodri Davies, and Heather Roche), Chris Cundy, Longstone, Anonymous (feat. Chris Cundy) and more.
