Archaeology of the Ear investigates historic locations that have sonorous and musical stories to tell.
In this pilot episode Chris Cundy goes to Winchcombe Pottery in Gloucestershire where the experimental composer Cornelius Cardew was born in 1936. We discover a cider jug that sheds light on Cardew's own past and reveals something about his approach to historic and mythological text in his music.
