The exciting debut album ‘With Love From… her & her’ from experimental multi-instrumentalists Cydnei B and Catherine Shrubshall aka: her&her, in collaboration with composer/producer Richard Kett (‘him’)
Together they draw on ‘comprovisation’ (a mix of composing and improvisation) to create a collage of soundscapes, textures and melodic lines using the esoteric ‘her&her’ orchestra of voices, clarinets, himalayan singing bowls, wha wha, drums, bells, koshi chimes, conch shells, sansulas, saxophones, eagle bone whistles, pitch pipes, xylophone – plus anything they can beg steal or borrow to blow, hit or lay their hands on.
Their freely improvised and imaginative ‘otherworldly’ music encourages deep listening, mindfulness and meditation, taking the listener on a musically resonant and replenishing journey, drawing on influences from around the world and beyond…through meditative mantra grooves, soulful siren songs and drum fuelled tribal trancing, and much much more!
Yes – all that wonderful layered sound really is just Cydnei and Catherine, with some wizard sound design and live axe attitude from Richard!
