SUPPORT: Brianna Cowlishaw and Gavin Ahearn
Inspired by the hypnotic hills of Norway, this mesmerising collaboration for voice and electronics is the culmination of an ongoing musical conversation which spans five years and three continents. The project presents a collection of original compositions and refreshing arrangements. The duo draws on their experience touring, teaching and performing across Asia, Europe and Australia.
