Event description
“Spiro create ecstatic, interlocking, intricate musical patterns… the power they summon up live makes them a must-see experience” Songlines

About this Event

Spiro's raw minimalism and trademark intricate interplay steps up a level in this exciting new collaboration with analogue-synth player Ruth Wall and Steve Reich's vocalists of choice, the incredible Synergy Vocals. A new collection of pieces by Spiro's main composer Jane Harbour harnesses the super-human technique of Synergy's voices, combining with Spiro’s driving instrumentals to create one emotionally charged but exquisitely controlled machine.

Drawing on folk instrumentation, minimalist classical music, and electronica, Harbour’s writing for voices deconstructs and rebuilds the meaning of language, retelling and subverting the tales behind English folk songs. This music crystallises emotional experience in surreal vignettes, conjuring filmic images and exploring our timeless struggle with the human condition, loss and female power.

Join us to discover this new commission in the darkly atmospheric St Barnabas Church. Bar selling Tap Social beers available.
