Nest Collective: Crewdson & Cevanne | Ålesund
Wednesday 27th June
THE NEST COLLECTIVE IS RUN BY PROMOTER AND MERCURY PRIZE NOMINATED MUSICIAN SAM LEE.
EACH MONTHLY SHOWCASE FOCUSES ON BRITISH AND WORLD FOLK MUSIC WITHIN THE CONTEMPORARY MUSIC SCENE.
Crewdson & Cevanne create an extraordinary sonic world by spinning together electronics and folk, blending their voices with harp and found sounds played on their DIY electronic instruments. They met live on air for London’s Resonance FM. Jumping straight into an improvised broadcast, a new project was born. Crewdson is known for his electronic inventions and Cevanne is an award-winning contemporary composer. Together, they have collected field recordings from across the UK to create multi-layered music telling their stories. The result is a modern approach to British song which straddles the traditional and avant-garde.
New four-piece dreamscape pioneers Ålesund create an immersive sound-world with rolling drums; intricate guitar work; and soaring vocals. Ålesund are an atmospheric force from the trip hop heartland that create expansive, emotive and exhilarating sound worlds.
