'Edwin Armstrong overture': composition, sample editing and performance by Robert Iolini. 'Oradio": drums, string cans and two wild AM radios create wonderful real-time rhythms. 'Afternoon tea series': electro-acoustic composer Adam uses advanced digital sound manipulation techniques to explore the mundane rituals of tea cups, sugar bowls and coffee machines. 'Arcana from lost cults': a perfect white cloud, in the form of a line, divides the sky into two irreconcilable parts. 'The cosmic joke': techno rhythms drive the narrative in this pulsating piece. 'Unreal fair': work for koto, percussion and voice (Satsuki Odmura: koto; Philip South: percussion; Mara Kiek: vocals), introduced by the composer. Chris Abrahams gives a performance of his latest work for piano.

Works by Leak, Rigney, and AdrenaLentil are in 'Earshots' series of 3-minute audio clips commissioned by The Listening Room.
