X-Ray Audio: Bones and the BBC

The X-Ray Audio Exhibition has enjoyed a lot of media attention in the last weeks. Stephen was on BBC Radio 4's TODAY program talking about it with Sarah Montague and the Russian journalist Victoria Bazoeva.

You can check it out HERE 

That  piece made it to Pick of the Week on Sunday: the weekly round up of the best programming from the previous seven day

BBC Ukraine ran a piece with some of the music that Stephen has composed for the project and which Aleks cut onto X-Ray

And last weekend BBC WORLD ran a very nice piece called 'Bone Music' by producer Natalia Rolleston with Stephen and Aleks Kolkowski which almost sounds like a trailer for our upcoming documentary.
