Extinctions - X-Ray Audio feature in BBC's The Echo Chamber

The Echo Chamber is a beautiful, evocative BBC Radio Four program made by producer Tim Dee and presenter Paul Farley.  Each episode features poetry and music around a particular theme.  The first episode of the new series is 'Extinctions' and features sounds from the X-Ray Audio Project:

"Paul Farley listens to old and new poetry of extinction one hundred years after the death of Martha, the last ever passenger pigeon. With poems from Fleur Adcock, Sean O'Brien, W.S. Merwin and David Harsent and the sounds of X-ray audio, the samizdat music of the Soviet Union that used black-market plates of skulls and ribcages to capture the beginnings of rock and roll."

You can listen again HERE on I player until the end of December
