Alannah Chance

Audio producer who makes programmes focused on the marginal, the leftfield and the hard to define.

Alannah is an award winning audio producer who works across podcasts, music radio and documentaries. 

She was lead producer of Late Junction, the BBC’s flagship experimental music programme, for the last 5 years where she launched the first Late Junction Festival, produced a Christmas special with a cement mixer and brought choruses of vending machines to the late night listeners of BBC Radio 3. Her latest documentaries include Electronic India, presented by fellow studios resident Paul Purgas, tracing the unknown history of electronic music in India.  

And a series for BBC Radio 4 called New Weird Britain looking at the blossoming of performance art in Britain.

She started her life as a podcast producer making podcasts for the Guardian and has since gone on to work with a host of different arts and music organisations. Her recent productions include: a series for BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art and Wellcome Collection exploring the idea of Caring as a Creative Act;  a series for Glasgow based music festival Counterflows; podcasts on plant sentience for Camden Art Centre and a monthly podcast called ‘Low Culture’ for music website The Quietus. 

During her time on the Creators in Residence programme, Alannah is producing a new series called Working Title for Somerset House, exploring the big ideas that emerge out of the sticky middle of the creative process.
