"The Stroma Sessions" is a new BBC audioplay, and recommended to Infocult readers.
The plot concerns a music group that repairs to a remote island for creative recording work, and how things go ... wrong, and weird. You might get a Blair Witch vibe from the start, but it goes in interesting directions very quickly.
'The Blackletter Quartet', a new music ensemble, had an idea: to write and record an album on Stroma, an abandoned island off the north coast of Scotland.
Five years after the Quartet's disappearance, 'The Stroma Sessions' - a series of audio files charting the musicians time on the island and the music they created there - were discovered on the internet.
Stroma was abandoned in the early 1960s: its few remaining buildings stand dilapidated, battered by the North Sea. The four musicians sought inspiration in the ruined houses and unforgiving weather. They wanted to make music in a ghost town. The evidence suggests they found what they were looking for.
