“Considerable durations of music no-one’s heard of. What could be better?”
“This is the only podcast I subscribe to and it’s always a journey. It’s one way I find out about new music. I totally recommend it to the person who is actually interested in broadening their horizons.” (Scott Colburn)
“You don’t half play some great sounds. I’ve been checking out your back catalogue. Long live The Sound Projector. Long live Resonance FM. Long live the creative / inventive musician and broadcaster!” (Steve Shine, regular listener)
“In a way, for me you have become, sort of, my replacement John Peel…I do get pretty much from The Sound Projector what I once did from his show.” (David Patrick, regular listener)
Since 2004, The Sound Projector Radio Show broadcasts live from London on Resonance 104.4 FM every Friday, 5.30pm-7pm. Usually hosted by Ed Pinsent, occasionally with special guests who bring their own records. Webstreaming is available from the Resonance website.
The content of the show is determined a few days in advance; check the Resonance FM Schedule page, and scroll to the Friday 17:30 slot, to see the detail of any forthcoming show.
The format of the show is either (A) selections from new records and CDs sent to The Sound Projector Music Magazine, or (B) shows themed loosely on a particular topic. (A) can include virtually any form of contemporary music or sound-art, for example improvised music, drones, modern composition, minimalism, sound poetry, electronica, laptop music, noise, or songs. (B) sometimes includes records from the presenter’s personal collection, if they fit the theme.
Playlists appear on this site every week, as posts; the archive is searchable. A podcast of the show is attached to its playlist as soon as possible. If the playlists don’t tell you enough, we’re happy to provide additional information about the music played on air.
