In the Quiet is a music show broadcasting music featuring silence, or quietude, as an intentional aspect of the composition. Stylistically it crosses a broad spectrum of music – ambionica (ambient + electronica), improvised music, spoken word, new composition, jazz, drone, global sounds, post-everything and on occasion, pre-anything. It's about aural landscapes, music that stretches far in to the horizon, but doesn't ignore those small details beside you.
You can expect to hear Kazuya Nagaya, Harold Budd, Arja Kastinen, Sophie Hutchings, Luke Howard, Sunwrae Ensemble, Robert Rich, Antonymes , Iarla O'Lionaird, Library Tapes, Amiina, Aidan Baker, Luduvico Einaudi, Nick Tsiavos, Meredith Monk, Bill Laswell, Kate Carr, The Necks, Peter Broderick, Alessandra Celletti and a whole lot more that you and I may or may not yet know.
The music we'll listen to is as much about a feel. Oceanic, narcotic, raga-like, spacious, autumnal, playful, naive, enchanting, weird, minimalist, restive... I hope you can join me In the Quiet.
