Episode 125: Guest Dave Burraston (NYZ, Noyzelab, Dave Noyze, Bryen Telko)

Joining me on his UK and European tour, experimental synth legend Dave Burraston plays some exclusive tracks and talks about his work with cellular automata and more. David is currently engaged in a Regional Arts Fellowship. This Regional Arts Fellowship is supported by the NSW Government through Arts NSW. On the tour, Dave was composing at EMS in Stockholme,  and field recording with Chris Watson in the Humber Estuary.

You can listen to the show live on NTS from 1am to 3am on Tuesday 28th February. Or catch up on the stream shortly after here. Tracklist below.
