Bishi Live: Albion Voice
Bishi's new live work "Albion Voice" is an amazing cross-media presentation that has been received with excitement and wonder. Songs from the album of the same name are performed whilst Bishi is immersed in visuals, projected over and around her to form an environment of ever shifting lines and perspective. Beautiful images and effects enhance the drama of the music to create a moving and exhilarating experience.
The album forms the nucleus of a wider conceptual work, in collaboration with long term creative partner, Matthew Hardern, Bishi is exploring the potential of expressing the ideas and influences behind the composition in different media. AV performance, online exploration, gallery installation and the creation of a body of artifacts has extended the musical work into both the virtual and physical space.
Bishi is one of the UK’s most exciting young artists, and in her recent album Albion Voice she explores themes of ancient and modern Britain and the rich tapestry of East London’s folklore. This live show, conceived with long-term creative partner Matthew Hardern, sees songs from the album performed while Bishi is immersed in visuals, projected over and around her to form an environment of ever shifting lines and perspective.
