Over the past ten years, Soundwalk Collective has won international recognition for their work of abstracting and re-composing narrative sound pieces through fragments of reality, and by forging evocative journeys in sound that are exhibited in the form of sound installation and performance. This Anniversary Series will showcase selected works that have both defined and defied the soundscape genre. Tday's broadcast is "Empty Quarter: recordings from the Rub' Al Khali desert 2009." Much like an anthropologist doing fieldwork in a marginal land, Soundwalk Collective went on a 45-day journey through this desert of deserts, the crossroads of the Arabic civilization, recording hundreds of hours of sonic fragments. The result is a reflection on silence, an hypnotic meditation on a forsaken world, transience and the footprints left by man on earth. Sounds collected here know no boundaries, just as the nomadic traditions remind us. soundwalkcollective.com/

Featuring live music from Sexton Ming, Hand of Stabs and Broken Banjo. Sexton will also playing the 10 tunes that he would choose to take with him if locked up in solitary confinement. Hand of Stabs, from the South East of England, are a three man collective who’s work draws inspiration from their exploration of local, often forbidden, landmarks. Using unusual instrumentation and homemade equipment, they create a wall of sound which can be simultaneously uplifting, difficult and disturbing. http://soundcloud.com/stabhand/ Boyhood friends Mike Sewell, Harry Elvin & Liam Lynott formed Broken Banjo for a Battle of the Bands competition that took place at The Royal Marine on Dock Road in Chatham, Kent. They have been going from strength to strength ever since with their raucous brand of hairy chested, bluesy, rock'n'roll in the mould of Canned Heat. http://www.reverbnation.com/brokenbanjo http://hellogoodbyeshow.com http://www.facebook.com/ThedeXterBentleyHelloGoodByeShow https://twitter.com/deXterBentley http://www.resonancefm.com
