Experimental sounds and sonic adventures continue apace at TUSK HQ, where the North East’s premier proponents of underground culture offer yet more audio and visual delights in the form of their TUSK TV and TUSK Editions programming.

Their third instalment lands on Friday 4th June, and will once again feature four hours of free music, interviews and more, featuring performances from multi-instrumentalist and composer Ashley Paul; the raw electronics of Sourdure; prolific artist and MC Ibaaku; Houssam Gania, the celebrated figure of Gnaoua music, which combines ritual poetry with traditional music and originates from Morocco and sub-Saharan Africa and Chinese audio visual artist Gogoj, aka Sheng Jie. A particular highlight will be a series of responses to a recording from popular Yorkshire poet Ian McMillan by Posset, Claire Rousay, Charmaine Lee, Luke Poot, Yol and more and there’s also an interview with Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy and Matt Sweeney conducted by local folk hero Cath Tyler. It’ll all be presided over by creative improviser, composer and broadcaster Corey Mwamba.

In addition, digital publication/members club TUSK Editions will see a special mix from musical explorer and DJ Christina Hazboun alongside exclusive new music from power trio The Rolling Calf and much more.

TUSK TV is freely available via their website from Friday 4th June. Access TUSK Editions or join the members scheme from £7
