Drivetime Underground is a radio series for the hottest new music around, delivered to you in one fun-and-up-to-the-minute
Hear all about your favourite composers, and the big issues in the small world of new music alongside games, quizzes, news, travel and more.
Drivetime Underground is a radio show featuring experimental music and performance, but devised, produced, curated and presented in the style of a commercial radio ‘magazine’-style show.
The series responds head-on to perceived growing commercial pressures faced by composers, performers, and organisations in today's cultural marketplace, whether that’s in the form of funding cuts and questionable governmental policies, rising costs of education, corporate sponsorship of arts centres, aggressive self marketing or cross-over tactics and the kinds of demands this puts on artists and their work.
Drivetime Underground is not, however, purely satirical or critical per se. Rather, it positions itself as a hypothetical outcome of the current cultural landscape - a site where artistic and commercial concerns can collide. A dissonant combination of the highbrow and the lowbrow, the esoteric and the exoteric.
Drivetime Underground is supported as part of the Sound and Music 'Composer-Curator' scheme
