On demand for all of February, listen to a new work of sound art exploring how we use music to comfort ourselves.

How to Be Held
This collection of new music responds to anonymous contributors who have offered lyrics, a riff, or a musical hook that they use to help themselves through tough times.
In response to these personal starting points, to repetition and looping, and to ideas around self-soothing and lullabies, tracks were created by Cevanne Horrocks-Hopayian, Cutter/Nash, dmf (Sop), Katy Rose Bennett, and Rhiannon Armstrong. You can find out more about these individual artists in the information on each track.
