Unclassified is a Music programme.

Seasons in Detail


Elizabeth Alker surveys the landscape of contemporary ambient recordings, with songs that soothe, spiral, and soar. This week, she invites Geologist from the long-running psychedelic group Animal Collective into the Listening Chair, where he selects music that transports him to another realm. We also hear a piece from Animal Collective's new album, Time Skiffs, with which the group once again smudge the lines between ambience and all-out bombast.

Genre: Music

Running Time: 120 minutes (approx)
