Steve Urquhart – Four Metal Plates

I’ve chosen FOUR METAL PLATES by Hana Walker-Brown.  I’ve never met Hana, but I think this is brilliant.  I first heard it eight months ago and it’s stuck with me since then.

This is an horrific story – and particularly compelling because it could have happened to any of us. I really admire the way Hana's put it together: stunning use of music, fx, eq, subtle flashes of reverb... and plenty of space and silence. It's dramatic but not overly so. The deserving winner of this year's Charles Parker Prize. Listen in the player above, or via these links, to Audioboo and Soundcloud.
