Episode 3: Taste


In this episode we invite composers Gerald BarryMatthew Shlomowitz, and Joanna Ward to share their music and thoughts exploring the theme of Taste.

From writing a piece intentionally ‘in bad taste’, to cultural appropriation, from the memory of and ethics of taste; join our CEO Susanna Eastburn MBE and composer Des Oliver for a unique insight into composing.

This podcast was produced by Michael Umney (Resonance FM) and mixed by Chris Bartholomew, with our theme tune composed by Rob Bentall. Our recommendation at the end of this episode is for the Britten Sinfonia.

In this episode, you listened to the following music and sounds:


Gerald Barry (b.1952)

Matthew Shlomowitz (b.1975)

Joanna Ward (b.1998)

Our heartfelt thanks to the record labels, performers, composers and organisations who allowed us to include excerpts of these recordings on the podcast.
