We Need No Swords podcast episode 24: Andie Brown


Andie Brown is a sound artist and composer from London. She often performs as These Feathers Have Plumes, working primarily with glass and electronics.

I was honoured to hang out with Andie and talk to her about how she conjures up the rich sonic textures that characterise her amazing work. Andie also guided me through the set-up she uses for her live shows, and treated us to a wonderful improvisation to bring the episode to a close.

Cheers Andie!
