Radia Episode 434: "Number Twelve" by Sophie Wilder (Soundart Radio). "Radia" is a weekly show put on by an international network of stations interested in creative and forgotten ways to make radio. Each week, one station makes a show for the rest. This week: Sophie Wilder has been making strange noises for over thirty years, initially at home but then as part of the legendary lost 80s band Well Crucial. Nowadays she intersperses infrequent improvisation as part of the A Band with weekly broadcasts of bizarre sounds on Soundart Radio. Her home equipment consists of a couple of battered synth modules, a few musical toys and primitive recording equipment Things Sophie likes Electronic experimentation Birdsong Old Science fiction Totnes The great outdoors Cats Things Sophie hates Convention Capitalism Broccoli Winter Spiders Garden gnomes Things Sophie is A drifting clarifier An experimenter Usually late An introvert Things Sophie is not Organised Good at writing about herself Sophie Wilder is not married, has no children, and does not live in Surrey.
