Listen Playlist Show 6 : Helen Ottaway Wednesday 31st March 2020
Helen Ottaway was invited by Mel Day of the Black Swan Arts programming group to be the curator of LISTEN, A Season of Sound Art. All the artists involved in LISTEN were asked to chose a Playlist made up of music and sound that has inspired them along with some of their own work.
