BeatBearing on BBC Radio Ulster


Last Friday, after the BeatBearing was shown in the Irish News newspaper, I was invited onto the ‘Arts Extra’ show on BBC Radio Ulster. This experience has made me realise quite how difficult it is explaining a tangible interface to a radio audience. I’m also glad it wasn’t a live broadcast, as the BeatBearing decided to stop working half way through the interview and needed some coaxing (and a reboot of Ableton Live) to work again.

If you’re quick, you can catch the whole show using ‘listen again’ on the BBC iPlayer:

The BeatBearing section starts around 10 minutes into the program. Otherwise you can listen to just the section on the BeatBearing here:

Many thanks to Conor McKay for organising the interview, and to Kim Lenaghan (pictured above) for the interview itself.
