Emergence Collective builds beautiful, minimalist sound worlds that gradually evolve through improvised performance.
Featuring a revolving lineup and a vibrant mix of ancient and modern instruments, the ensemble brings together exciting combinations of the North’s finest improvisors. Drawing on their collective musical backgrounds in folk, jazz, experimental and early music, they generate a hypnotic, otherworldly kaleidoscope of sound, completely unique to every live performance and every space they perform in.
The group has played at and sold out venues across the north of England, released several albums, and run practical and accessible workshops exploring their creative process. Directed by Juliana Day (recorders/whistles), Rob Bentall (nyckelharpa), Tim Knowles (guitar) and Zebedee Budworth (hammered dulcimer).
This performance has no spoken text so it is suitable for D/deaf and hearing-impaired audiences.
