Cosmo Sheldrake + Murmuration Choir

— The Trinity Centre
Acclaimed musician, producer + sound collector collaborates with 60-voiced, contemporary music choir
time:19:00
price: Headfirst Tickets

Information:

Tonight sees another of Murmuration Choir's bespoke collaborations with an artist they hold in great esteem - musician, producer and celebrator of environmental sound, Cosmo Sheldrake.


COSMO SHELDRAKE

Cosmo returns to Bristol after a sell-out show in November, to indulge in a long-held love of working with voices. With an additional background in enthomusicology, folk song and acapella harmony - running his own Brighton-based choir up until 2013, and training with legendary vocal improviser, Bobby McFerrin - he will draw upon Murmuration Choir to flesh pieces from his acclaimed 2018 album 'The Much Much How How and I', and 2015 EP 'Pelicans We', and direct McFerrin-style, Circle-Song improvisations. We shall also enjoy some straight-up classic Sheldrake pieces from the man himself, doing what he does best with samples of suns, whales and birds, improvised and looped with live production, into arrangements that stir the heart, mind and feet.

MURMURATION CHOIR

In under a year, Murmuration Choir has quickly become one of Bristol's most exciting vocal projects, bringing together 64 established singers and artists in their own right, who share a passion for 21st-century innovators of popular music. Inspired by 6Music DJs, their repertoire draws from Neo-Soul, Electronica, and Experimental Pop, and is arranged into 8-part harmony, accompanied by beatboxer, Jack Salt.

Isolde's work also shares a love of found sound and creative music production, incorporating influences from artists such as Bjork, James Blake, Little Dragon and Tune-Yards.
