The opera "Lost Highway" premiered last week at Oberlin College in Ohio and one local critic called it "a real nightmare." It was meant as a compliment. How else to describe an opera based on David Lynch's quirky 1997 film? Austrian composer Olga Neuwirth wrote the score and joins us today.

"What about download culture—does it bother you if people illegally download your records?

No, not particularly, I don’t mind people downloading my music, there’s a side to it that frustrates me but I think maybe because I’m becoming an old fuddy-duddy the side of it that frustrates me is that I really love the art of the album, I like putting together a body of work kind of forty-five minutes or so and releasing it with the idea that people are going to play it from beginning to end, and as music is downloaded people select tracks and everything is kind of chopped up. ...

People moan about losing sales but I’ve found the more people download my record, the more records I sell. I also know that once I start touring I’ll turn up in towns where I’ve sold fifty records but seven hundred kids want to come out and see the show, so it builds a genuine fan base—that’s the important thing.

Kieran Hebden is one of those impressive young geniuses whose creative juices flow like Mount Vesuvius. At 17, he co-founded the outstanding post-rock outfit Fridge, and by the following year, had already released an acclaimed solo record as Four Tet. Since then, he's managed to keep both projects going strong. Both acts forge a middle ground between "pure" electronic music and "post-rock," with Fridge tending more toward post-rock and Four Tet toward electronic. Four Tet's combination of acoustic and electronic elements sounds fresh and unique, particularly at a time when so much electronic music is conceived and produced without ever leaving the digital realm. With its extensive use of field recordings and acoustic samples, Four Tet's music sounds truly organic and alive. More

Normally written cLOUDDEAD, this mysterious US hip-hop collective create some of the most bizarre recordings to emerge from any genre of music, least of all the world of rap. Put together by rappers Doseone, Why?, and Odd Nosdam, cLOUDDEAD's 2001 debut featured a guest vocalist list drawn from America's rap underground and was originally released during the previous year as a series of six 10-inch singles. Mixing strange, chanted vocals and ambient soundscapes characterised by tape and distortion, the limited edition singles gained a word-of-mouth reputation and before too long had sold out. Compiled on a single disc and three LPs by the Big Dada label, the music retained its capacity for surprise and established cLOUDDEAD as one of the most ambitious and unique projects in contemporary music.
