Laura Cannell
The Earth With Her Crowns

The Earth With Her Crowns is an album of improvised single takes recorded by composer Laura Cannell inside the former Wapping Hydraulic Power Station in London, known as the arts centre and restaurant, The Wapping Project. Cannell was commissioned by the project to explore the qualities the gigantic building could bring to music improvised within its walls. It was the final act of the Wapping Project before proposals by the local council to turn the building into flats.

Laura Cannell & André Bosman
Reckonings

On Reckonings, we get two experimental violinists for the price of one -- this is the debut album from Laura Cannell & André Bosman as a duo. The pair set about channeling medieval cultures and strange alien worlds; herein, ancient melodies co-mingle with the drone of re-imagined, long-asleep Saxons. The album was composed spontaneously and recorded in old churches, to capture the essence of their playing -- unrehearsed, unplanned, direct. Their recordings took place during all seasons with wind howling, torrential rain-showers, blazing sun and thawing snow all happening variously outside.

Laura Cannell
Simultaneous Flight Movement

Laura Cannell is chiefly a violin player who has a dark swooping style that sounds like dark birds flying over a desolate beach. Indeed this album was recorded Southwold Lighthouse in Suffolk and consists of semi improvised pieces that veer from minimal chamber music to full on orchestral string-scapes.
