Turntable manipulator Shiva Feshareki has put together an Éliane Radigue special for NTS. The three hour show explores the legacy of the French drone pioneer, who has been creating her own brand of electroacoustic music, as well as pure acoustics, since the ’60s.

Earlier this year, Shiva gave the very first performance of Daphne Oram’s ‘Still Point’, a ground-breaking piece for turntables and orchestra that was rejected by BBC bosses and shelves for decades.
