BBC Radio 3 Exposure: Milton Keynes

Book tickets


Verity Sharp hosts the latest event in the BBC Radio 3 series showcasing experimental music up and down the UK, with sets from Miles Cooper Seaton (Akron Family/Angels of Light), Milton Keynes three-piece Black Spring and Aylesbury-based improvising duo Lust Rollers. 



Miles Cooper Seaton 

For over a decade Miles Cooper Seaton’s work has defied genre and discipline, spanning immersive ambient installations, intimate sets in sacred spaces and festival stages from Los Angeles to Tokyo – as a solo artist, with his own band Akron/Family and as a member of Michael Gira’s Angels of Light. Their common thread is the raw emotional charge that infuses every performance with incendiary energy, leaving listeners hyper-sensitised to their own feelings and bodies, to each other and to the world around them. 



Black Spring 

'Imagine one of those classic stoner rock crews – Sleep, perhaps, or Om – hunkering down in the Black Ark to cut some sides for Hyperdub with an Apollo-era Eno casting a quizzical eye over proceedings.’ (We Need No Swords)

Black Spring are an emerging MK/Derby trio creating heavily repetitive music from a palette of processed tapes, guitar, voices, drums, synth & homemade instruments.



Lust Rollers


Lust Rollers are the celestial poets opening the shutters of the heart

Lust Rollers are the stablemen of the wild horses

Lust Rollers are the two magpies - silence and darkness

Lust Rollers are the stars that eat the oblique skies

Lust Rollers are at the crossroads of sound

Lust Rollers are a strange but clear dream

Lust Rollers are hanging from the inner cadaver

Lust Rollers are the tortured men

Lust Rollers bent in agony in a sealed room...

Lust Rollers are the inquest

Lust Rollers are idiot scrapers, blowers and bashers
