Very proud to have contributed, even a little, to the ABOUT US project, an immense visual and musical instillation, composed by the brilliant Nitin Sawhney. I along, with some London Contemporary Voices, had the joy of recording the choral parts. Read more about this project below:
About Us is a breathtaking journey through 13.8 billion years of our history, using projection mapping, animation, live music and more to tell the story of life, the universe and the connections between us.
This mesmerising show toured the UK in the spring to huge acclaim from audiences, and it’s arriving at the Tower of London for a well-deserved encore. For the occasion, singers from all five tour locations will come together for the first time – including choir members of Codetta from Derry-Londonderry, Hull Freedom Chorus, Glasgow City Chorus, Côr Dre and Côr Eifionydd from Caernarfon and BIG Hat Factory Choir from Luton.
Words in the projection come from leading UK poets: Llŷr Gwyn Lewis, Jen Hadfield, Jason Allen-Paisant, Khairani Barokka, Stephen Sexton, and Grug Muse. Throughout, the choirs perform an original score from widely-awarded and acclaimed composer and musician Nitin Sawhney CBE.
