Katharsis is a weekly journey to the polar regions of contemporary music. These unfamiliar musical frontiers are scoured for adventurous new sounds grounded in harmony, melody and beauty. Selections range from the sublimely quiet and reverent to overwhelming aural overload, yet more often than not sustain a tranquil and soothing mood appropriate for later on a Sunday evening. Songs that both require and reward patient, intentional listening are highly favoured. Though rarely played,‘stars’ such as Karlheinz Stockhausen, John Cage, Steve Reich, Phillip Glass, Brian Eno, John Fahey, Nick Drake, Brian Wilson, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Rhys Chatham, Kevin Shields, and Mark Hollis light the way forward like a guiding constellation. In the joy of discovery and the weaving of these musical threads into a cohesive sonic tapestry, Katharsis aims to provide exactly that which its name implies.
