A double bill of two instrumentalists whose unique sounds blend a mastery of their acoustic instruments with an artful use of electronics.
Beautiful melancholic cello lines float over hypnotic loops and rhythms reflecting the passing of time. In these rare UK performances, New York-based Julia Kent performs music from her critical acclaimed album Temporal (Leaf), a heartfelt meditation on the fleeting, fragile nature of existence. Featuring music developed from theatre and dance, this tour features new video by French artist Antoine Schmitt bringing an evocative visual story to this special solo performance.
‘A stunningly controlled and moving work, for fans of ambient and instrumental music Temporal is a must-listen’ ?????
Composer and saxophonist Daniel Thorne is also fascinated by the endless possibilities between acoustic and electronic, composition and improvisation. This blurring of lines is at the heart of his music, creating a unique sonic world. His debut solo album, Lines of Sight was released on Erased Tapes in March 2019.
‘Lines of Sight is a place where experimental electronica, avant-garde jazz and classical collide… [it] has the grandeur and presence to fill a cathedral’
