excuse the mess is a new music podcast hosted by Ben Corrigan. It’s all about getting to know some of today's most exciting composers. We’ll chat about them and their music, of which you’ll hear excerpts throughout the episode. Then we’ll take on a music challenge; to co-compose a new piece of music in a day using only one instrument that the guest chooses to bring. You’ll be invited behind the scenes to discover how we made the track, step-by-step.

Well worth a listen!
This is a really interesting and creative podcast, well worth a listen. It combines a fun and down to earth interview style with extracts of music from the featured performer/ composer. Better still, it offers a unique window into the creative process as Ben creates a brand new work with the performer/ composer he is interviewing and explains how the resulting track was made. I can't wait to hear more!
Excuse the compliment...
