Between the Ears

An adaptation of Frederick Forsyth's haunting classic Christmas tale, read by Luke Thompson and adapted for radio by Amber Barnfather. On Christmas Eve in 1957 a young RAF pilot is alone in the cockpit of his Vampire, flying over the North Sea, when the radio goes dead. The work's binaural soundscape features specially recorded a cappella pieces, improvised sounds and mouth/body percussion by the Saint Martin Singers conducted by Charles Talbot. It includes symbolic sound effects using Christmas decorations and Vampire aircraft recordings made at the RAF Museum, London.

Genre: Documentary
