Artist Info Laura Cannell Laura Cannell, Dunwich, 2015 Based in rural East Anglia, Laura Cannell’s work draws on the emotional influences of the landscape and the sometimes dissonant chords of early and medieval music. With deconstructed bow and the extraordinary sound of double recorder, Laura’s music has grown out of unearthed fragments that became improvised pieces. Her music encompasses both wild animal calls and long forgotten liturgical fragments, which drawn through Laura’s music seem to originate from the same, ahistorical place. With a background in traditional folk, early and experimental music, she creates a solitary minimalist chamber music, where one player makes all the harmonies.
Her highly acclaimed album Beneath Swooping Talons which was No.3 in MOJO Magazine’s Underground Albums of the Year 2015, No. 17 in The Wire’s Top 50 Albums 2015 as well as appearing in several other EOY Lists including The Guardian’s Top 5 Experimental Albums of 2015, Uncut, Melting Vinyl, The Quietus & Norman Records (No. 20 for 2015) and ABC Perth. Laura’s music has received numerous outings on BBC Radio 6Music including an interview with Stuart Maconie, as well as BBC Radio 3, Radio 4, NTS Radio and many others.
