A celebration of creative projects that never got finished or never made it out into the world.
What’s the value to be found in unfinished and private writing, art, and music? What stops us from finishing things off? And what might happen if the pressure to complete projects disappeared?
I’ll be asking my guests to search their bottom drawers and the abandoned corners of their laptops to rediscover secret and incomplete schemes.
This week, our guest is musician Sophie Cooper. Sophie tells me about her unfinished art installation. It’s called “Prog Land” and it’s a model of a theme park based on prog rock album covers.
We also talk about how Sophie overcame a disastrous A-level music course, about her terrific work for the DIY music scene, about how babies can learn music, and about how she made a robot and a dinosaur destroy Hawaii.
You can find out more about Sophie’s work on her website: www.sophiecoopermusic.com
Presented by Em Anderson.
