Tulips & Radio History

          … it’s nothing short of daft that a superabundance of radio-driven experiments in audio fiction and composed non-fiction is being disappeared in my own adopted country in a neo-liberal inspired narrowing of the ‘listener offer’

Agile Critics

          Key to making this new agile criticism work is not an understanding of the ‘art critic’ … but rather a sensibility for the always-changing and fluid nature of sound and sound art production itself.

Joan: Despite not wanting to direct a reader too overtly, is there is an ideal method for reading The LiteraryMix? For example, do you feel there’s a better/worse platform such as smart phone vs. tablet, laptop vs. desktop? Are you
