Restless Texture

Comissioned by Short Cuts BBC 4

Commissioned for BBC Radio 4, Calum created this composition to reflect on his own experience as an autistic person, specifically the way in many autistic people are very sensitive to touch and textures.

Interviewing other autistic people, as well as using his own words, Calum created a playful sonic experiment which explores the way in which sounds can evoke different textures and sensations. The process of creating this composition allowed Calum to develop his documentary approach, while also exploring autobiographical work for the first time.
