Closing event to Laura Philips solo exhibition
Viridian are an ethereal blend of image, voice, cello and double bass which re-imagines folkloric forms and tropes of femininity.
Improvisation of both sound and image (digital & analogue) produce a dialogic blend of textural depths.
Dissociative states, keening, and the supernatural inspirit the ensemble; each performance evokes utterances, nonsensical languages, and trans species forms of communication through collective rhythm, tone and resonance.
Our ensemble plays with improvisational visuals as the score. For radio broadcasts we have performed live experimental improvisation sets.
