Kate Carr and Leila Bordreuil in session

Verity Sharp presents a collaboration between sound artist Kate Carr and cellist Leila Bordreuil. Plus devotional vocals from Ustaad Sami and electronic minimalism from Japan.

Verity Sharp presents an exclusive collaboration between two musicians who have never met: the sound artist Kate Carr and cellist Leila Bordreuil.

Kate Carr is an Australian sound artist and field recordist currently based in London. Her work often explores people and place, with a particular interest in the complex relationships between natural and built environments. Her music blurs the boundaries between field recording and electronics to articulate a wonder in the everyday. Leila Bordreuil is a cellist and composer, originally from France and now in New York. Using her cello as her starting point, she uses improvisation and amplification to explore noise and texture. Her work often aims to interact with the listener’s tonal perception and their physiological relationship to space and sound.

Elsewhere in the programme there’s electronic minimalism from Japan, Nadah El-Shazly’s hectic take on Egyptian shaabi music, and some January reflections from 1968 courtesy of Peter Zinovieff and his PDP-8 computer. Plus devotional vocals from legendary Surti master Ustaad Sami and his four sons, recorded live at his rooftop home in Pakistan in 2018.
