Options March 5, 2012: John Wynne: Upcountry - for Radio Boredcast


Upcountry is a mix of country music, experimental sound works, field recordings and the kind of dance music that makes you want to sit down. This is a specially commissioned edition of the show that John Wynne created regularly for 3 years in the first decade of the 21st century on ResonanceFM in London, where he "invited Tammy Wynette to have tea with Pierre Henry - in a thunderstorm" (Ed Baxter).

John Wynne is a sound artist whose practice includes large-scale multi-channel installations for galleries and public spaces, delicate sound sculptures, flying radios and award-winning composed documentaries which hover on the boundary between documentation and abstraction. His installation for 300 speakers, player piano and vacuum cleaner became the first work of sound art in the Saatchi collection in London and won him the 2010 British Composer Award for Sonic Art. His work with endangered languages includes a project with click languages in the Kalahari Desert and another with one of Canada's indigenous languages, Gitxsanimaax. His work on the Transplant project with photographer Tim Wainwright led to a book, an installation and a half-hour commission for BBC Radio. He has won Silver and Bronze awards at the Third Coast International Audio Festival in Chicago in 2005 and 2008. John is a Reader in Sound Arts at the University of the Arts London, a core member of the CRISAP research centre and has a PhD from Goldsmiths College, University of London.
