Be Creative Today, It’s Wednesday 7th Feb

BBC Radio 3 Exposure

Verity Sharp of BBC Radio 3’s Late Junction just tweeted to say: “Happy to be heading to Hebden Bridge today for this month’s Exposure with Magpahi, The Slowest Lift and Andrew Liles. On air 22nd Feb.”

In support of the artists involved, here’s what I’ve found them doing online, and very exciting it all is.

Magpahi, Alison Cooper

“Falsetto fairytale folk songs and 16th century poems from the black and white birds nest.” – Alison Cooper, Facebook.

The Slowest Lift, Sophie Cooper

“Sophie Cooper taking My Bloody Valentine into the lounge of The Great Northern for a new Twin Peaks bar music.” – Steve Malley aka The Horse Loom / The Unit Ama

“a wonderful British musician who plays lightly deranged guitar and/or keys while singing like she sees bats everywhere” – Bryon Coley, The Wire

“Sophie Cooper is a West Yorkshire based musician who enjoys experimenting with the conventions of song writing. Her main instruments are trombone, guitar and vocals and the music made could be described as psychedelic, drone or noise music. The songs have a dreamlike quality, with sounds and vocals drifting in and out of clarity.” –

Andrew Liles

“Andrew Liles is a prolific solo artist, producer, remixer and studio engineer. He has worked with many leading lights in experimental and outsider music and is renowned for his extensive contributions to the recordings and live performances of Nurse With Wound and Current 93. Recording since the mid 1980’s his work has been used in Theatre, Film, Radio and T.V. He has appeared on well over 200 releases creating a unique, eclectic and diverse back catalogue that crosses many genres and styles.” –
