GLORY IN THE BONE // DEBUT ALBUM LAUNCH PARTY
Join us for an immersive VIRTUAL night of music and poetry to celebrate the release of our debut album, Glory In The Bone. Musical soundscapes, looped vocal elements, and spoken word will combine to create new images and stories out of the written word.
Much of the album will be shared with you during the evening, as well as some new and fresh collaborations and experimentations. Genre and instrumentation becomes fluid as we delve into moments of Dr Seuss inspired joyous singing followed swiftly by sweeping depictions of windswept English countryside or calm recollections of picturesque sea walks.
ECHOES AND EDGES
Echoes and Edges is a collective of Bristol based poets and musicians, working together on ideas that merge spoken word with improvised and composed pieces of music. Through a combination of musical improvisation, atmospheric field recordings and soulful vocals, we transform the poems into sonic pictures of memories and moments.
We are three poets and two musicians:
Gillie Harries is an engaging poet / performer, published both here and in Australia - poet in the pool at Bristol lido and working towards publication of her first collection
Tim performs short, quirky, silly poems, covering a diverse range of cutting edge issues such as his favourite dance moves and a hedgehog called Dave.
David Punter is a well-known Bristol writer, winner of various prizes, and author of ‘The Bristol Sonnets’ and five volumes of poetry.
Charlie is a jazz vocalist, singer-songwriter and vocal coach who is involved in a number of projects including her own solo project of live-looped neo-soul as well as jazz and swing dance bands.
JAKOB OP DEN BROUW
Jakob is a sonic artist and multi-instrumentalist creating music and performances inspired by life, travel, found sounds, and the world.
We hope you’ll tune in wherever you are for this magical evening of music, poetry, soundscapes and celebration. www.youtube.com/watch?v=JmagulWF5Dg
Sharing the airwaves with us will of course be free, but we'd love it if you were still able to help us out with some of the costs of the album making process. You can PREORDER Glory In The Bone in it's digital form on Bandcamp, or get your hands on one of the virtual donation tickets. https://echoesandedges.bandcamp.com/releases
We'll also be selling the physical CDs, and they'll be available from our Bandcamp page very soon!
