Spiro's raw, punk-infused minimalism and trademark intricate interplay steps up a level in this exciting new collaboration with Steve Reich's vocalists of choice, the incredible Synergy Vocals and analogue-synth player Ruth Wall.
The groups merge to create one emotionally charged but exquisitely controlled machine as Spiro's main composer Jane Harbour harnesses the super-human technique of Synergy's voices.
With influences including minimalist classical music and electronica, Harbour has created a new form of systems music for vocals that deconstructs and rebuilds the meaning of language. Crystallising emotional experience in surreal vignettes, Harbour’s lyrics retell and subvert the tales behind English folk songs; conjuring filmic images and exploring our timeless struggle with the human condition, loss and female power.
Jane Harbour: violin and viola; Alex Vann: mandolin; Jon Hunt: guitar; Ruth Wall: synth
Jo Goldsmith-Eteson; Joanna Forbes L'Estrange; Kirsty Hopkins; Micaela Haslam (Director of Synergy Vocals)
