Cosmo Sheldrake + Murmuration Choir

Cosmo Sheldrake collaborates with Bristol contemporary vocal project, Murmuration Choir.

Murmuration Choir brings you another bespoke collaboration with an artist they hold in great esteem - Musician, Producer and Celebrator of Environmental sound, Cosmo Sheldrake. 

Cosmo returns to Bristol after a sell-out show in November, to indulge in a long-held love of working with voices. He has additional background in ethnomusicology, folk song and acapella harmony - running his own Brighton-based choir up until 2013, and training with the legendary Bobby McFerrin. He will draw upon Murmuration Choir to build on pieces from his acclaimed 2018 album 'The Much Much How How and I', and 2015 EP 'Pelicans We', and direct McFerrin-style, Circle-Song improvisations.

In under a year, Murmuration Choir has quickly become one of Bristol's most exciting vocal projects, bringing together 64 established singers, who share a passion for 21st-century innovators of popular music. Inspired by 6 Music DJs, their repertoire draws from Neo-Soul, Electronica, and Experimental Pop and is arranged into 8-part harmony, accompanied by beatboxer, Jack Salt. 

Supporting the evening will be Bristol-based artist and Murmuration director; Isolde, who will be performing a pre-release of her latest EP - 'Elements' - backed by a full band. Isolde's work also shares a love of found sound and creative music production, incorporating influences from artists such as Bjork, James Blake, Little Dragon and Tune-Yards.
