One of the great things about doing a radio show every week, is meeting extraordinary people doing extraordinary things, that I otherwise might never had heard about. Verity Lane is an artist, composer, creative director and writer who lived in Japan for ten years. She draws on this experience, in particular her study of classical Japanese traditions, that she takes into new realms of possibility with imagination and originality. On her latest projects, Origami Soundscapes explores ancient symbolism and Japanese birdsong and features a large scale origami performance, while The Crane reimagines a folk story with elements of noh theatre, dance, avant-garde music and animation. In addition to talking about this, we play some of her previous compositions and music by Bjork and Clive Bell. Full track listing https://www.farsidemusic.com/radio/310719_tracks.html
