Alan Hall

University of North Carolina Press

Alan Hall, a London-based freelancer who makes features for the BBC, is a trained composer who brings a consciously musical sensibility to his radio features. For him, the grince of a flicked cigarette lighter, used repeatedly in an audio portrait of a former Iraq War soldier, can serve as a powerful, musical pulse, freighted with meaning. Some of those meanings can be articulated, some only felt. Alan wants to use sound to “drill bore holes into the deeper recesses of consciousness.”

Keywords:   British Broadcasting Corporation, radio feature, musical sensibility
