Neil Cargill is currently writer and director of the online audio drama series described as “a sonic inferno” - AKIHA DEN DEN- a multi-layered story woven from the very fabric of radio. He has created many innovative plays for broadcast including EMOTION PICTURES for BBC Radio 3, an immersive road-trip based on Wim Wenders’ student diaries, featuring Dennis Hopper and Harry Dean Stanton, and THE GOLDEN DEMON which pitted the bizarre psyche of the inventor of the saxophone against the voice and conscience of the instrument itself.

On a lighter note his Radio 4 Afternoon Play THE WOMAN WHO WOULD BE COOK was a Christmas Day fantasy rebelling against the absurdity of tradition and conformity – a stance which, in a sense, could also be claimed of his several radio collaborations with poet and harmonium-wrangler Ivor Cutler.
