This is the first in a series of podcasts curated by Seth Cluett. I hope you enjoy it!

Yvette Janine Jackson has taken a new approach to composition: by combining her experiences in theater, in tape-based studios and at Columbia, she's created her own personal genre - Radio Opera - that combines music, spoken word and field recording into a compelling and performative brew.

In our chat, we go into the concept behind Radio Opera (as well as the narrative soundscapes that she is simultaneously developing), as well as the process that she goes through in creating these large format works. She also describes her journey into composer-hood, which is really instructive in terms of learning about her combination of influences.

Super exciting to hear about how this work is brought together. You can learn more about her work at, and I strongly suggest you check it out - it's a revealing view into the life of an active and hyper-inspiring artist. Enjoy!
