My session for the SBS Chill digital radio station earlier this April is now downloadable on Soundcloud. A minimal, spacious, Franco/Latin electronica mix, poetics ranging from Français, Español, Québécois, to Iraqi poet Nazik Al-Malaika ... For this hour set, I essentially went through my collection and drew out everything I'd marked as "beautiful", and "lovely" ..... then drank some sweet wine and settled into my headphones to dream for a while through music and poetry. I really do love what I do!

The track list is generally is as follows. The whole thing is building inevitably towards the gorgeous, timeless voice of Benjamín Escoriza (of Radio Tarifa fame) a voice which never fails to act on me like some kind of transportation device.....and speaking of transportation, Laurie Anderson had to make it into a mix sometime - she was one of my earliest inspirations in spoken word artistry, as I'm sure she's been for many others.
