Musicians wanted for Richard Skelton and Lauren Bon live shows

Musicians wanted for BBC Radio 3 Late Junction recording, plus a trio of springtime dates

Richard Skelton and artist Lauren Bon are performing three events in London, Manchester and Bexhill-on-Sea next year, and as part of the tour, will also be recording a show for BBC Radio 3’s Late Junction, for which they’re looking for musicians.

The recordings will take Lauren Bon’s durational sound sculpture Requiem For Water (which broadcasts live 24 hours a day) as a starting point. The recording sessions will take place in the first three weeks of January (dates TBC) and successful applicants will be paid £150. Deadline for applications is 11 December and directions for applying are here. The resulting piece will be broadcast by Late Junction on 29 January.

The series will continue later in the year with three springtime shows, headlined by Richard Skelton performing new pieces. On 20 March 2015, they perform at Manchester’s Islington Mill, followed by Bexhill-on-Sea’s De La Warr Pavillion the day after, finishing at St John at Hackney on 22 March.
