After more than three decades away from the URY airwaves, former head of classical Peter Aylmer returns to tell how he discovered at York the music of Olivier Messiaen, 20th-century composer and mentor to the avant-garde. No prior musical knowledge needed, just an ear for new sounds.
Expect to hear new, challenging and beautiful songs/non-songs. A wide range of styles, including non-mainstream areas of electronica, rock, pop, avant-garde, sound poetry, jazz, world, drone, noise and anything in between.
Designed with comfort in mind; the Coffee Shop Macchiato uses special techniques to transform the air around you into a beautiful sound-garden of relaxing chillout music. Whilst being enveloped, all you will be required to do is sit back, close your eyes and lit the music paint a sunny meadow of colours in your mind.
The last production of the URY Festival of Drama from the national award winning drama team at University Radio York.
Anxiously awaiting the return of his new wife, Adolph finds solace in the words of a stranger. But comfort soon turns to destruction as old wounds are opened, insecurities are laid bare and former debts are settled. Regarded as Strindberg's most mature work, "Creditors" is a darkly comic tale of obsession, honour and revenge. David Greig's version premiered at the Donmar Warehouse, London, in September 2008 and now comes to URY with an incredible student cast directed by Lewis Gray.
The production, starring Georgia Bird, Ryan Lane and Dan Wood will be in the third week of the URY Festival of Radio Drama!
