Currently broadcasting on SirenFM 107.3 to the City of Lincoln, 27/57 is an open submission Sound-Arts radio show. People send in their work, and we broadcast it. Simple as that really. Oh, except of course, the submission must be 27 or 57 minutes long and the contributer be subjected to a brief interview

Mr Badly Worn is a Sound Engineer, Musician, Experimentalist and a fully paid-up member of the Frying Pan Collective : ambient recordings & noises are sampled, and heavily processing then often deleted, so expect the sounds of various recording technologies being thoroughly abused in a very musical manner.

Dawn is a visual artist and composer. Her work explores the interplay between sound, space, movement and material. 53 of her 57 minutes is a work for 24 differently pitched wine glasses. The composition is based on a 'change ringing' system, as practiced by bell ringers. Following that there is a 4 minute improvisation on guitar seeking a range of harmonics produced by the strings. The final minute is a collection of different location recordings roughly cut together to investigate how the environment acts as a resonator or filter, like the body of an acoustic instrument, shaping the sound passing through it.

His 57 is entitled 'Under the Knife' and consists of 9 tracks on the dark side sporting titles such as anaesthesia, amputation, incision and convalesence.

Musician & sound-engineer, daz's vst plugins are used throughout this, the first of his looped based contributions - a new piece made up from works previously played on the show. A collusion of neo-conCRET[inism], sampling, manipulation and general chaos. He's also the series producer, by the way.
