    Nova is about new music including Siobhán Cleary's work for solo piano Leda and the Swan, a tumultuous evocation of the classic Greek myth of the rape of Leda by Zeus.

    hearSpace

    hearSpace is a new interactive piece of radio art composed for and through Irish radio by Karen Power. Based on the idea of exploring the sounds of a particular time, place and memory, hearSpace was broadcast on March 23rd at 9pm, and we had a great reaction to the work. Thank you everybody who sent in the beautiful and evocative sound-recordings that made hearSpace so special.
