Laura Cannell & Andre Bosman

Laura Cannell & André Bosman

Laura Cannell & André Bosman perform improvised experimental fiddle music with a focus on exploring the interweaving sounds and textures of their instruments. Through the use of extended techniques, distortion, feedback and space, they create a unified and untamed music of emotive otherness.

Laura is an innovative performer specialising in medieval, traditional and experimental music. She explores the spaces between ancient, improvised and contemporary performance and has been described by The Times as a “Virtuoso Magpie Musician”. Laura has toured extensively in the UK and beyond and performed live several times on BBC Radio 3. She has released four albums with Horses Brawl and following an artist residency at Aldeburgh Music, she wrote and recorded an album with experimental harpist Rhodri Davies.

André is interested in live performance and improvisation. With a love of distorted textures, early minimalism, American primitivism, and medieval dirge Andre attempts to explore the aesthetics of liminality and emergence within his music. André has performed with Phil Niblock, Tony Conrad and Rhodri Davies and toured all over the UK at events including Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival and Faster than Sound, and has had airplay on BBC Radio 1 and BBC Radio 3.
