This week was to be the “Harmonium” challenge, where artists were to take glass sounds (struck, rung, sung, blown, etc.) and make music of the sounds. We only received a single entry (thank you, Cloudwalk!), but the topic inspired a fascinating show anyway.

We’ll listen to artists’ interpretations of glass in various states — shattered, smooth, stained, still, and much more. We’ll hear the challenge track from Cloudwalk, and then turn to the RadioSpiral archives for works from ʞu¡0ɹʞS, John Koch-Northrup, Bing Satellites, Luna Firma, Max Corbacho, Robert Rich, Tone Ghost Ether, Tony Gerber, Numina, Emerald Adrift, EugeneKha, Michael Brückner, Thom Brennan, Pallid Mask, Jack Hertz, and Altus.
