In our first year together, we have given first performances at St Ethelbergers, The Poetry Cafe London and at the October Gallery London of 10 new works one of which we were asked to record for the Bigo & Twigetti label for release in September 2018. We have forged a collaborative relationship with the writers group Write Young Things and given performances with original poetry alongside free improvisation and new works for our series 'Open Chamber'. Our recording of Fiona Brice's String Quartet no 1 was given a spin on radio 3's Late Junction. We played on two soundtracks for the music documentary Fatherhood, and short film Starboy with music composed by Michael Blainey. Both of these films had messages which are so poignant in todays society. We are excited about this coming year with another recording scheduled for March and more in our Open Chamber series as well as many more exciting projects currently being developed.
Brother Tree Sound draws together musicians and composers with eclectic and dazzling sound worlds. Each project we curate, provides a platform for our artists to connect with a wider audience through collectively interpreting the landscape and language of 21st century emotions, reinterpreting genre and encouraging new ways of listening.
We believe in collective equality; embracing and inclusive.
We see art as a living thing, with constant new growth and direction, with roots to stay grounded, branches exposed and open to the elements of the world and its constant changes.
Individual members of Brother Tree Sound work with the top London orchestras, chamber groups and jazz ensembles, performing in all the major concert venues and festivals throughout the world.They have all met and played together as freelance London based musicians, be it for chamber music festivals in Bordeaux, at the Barbican for London Jazz Festival, or playing in one of the BBC proms.
The Brother Tree Sound family share a passion and a vision for contemporary music performance by writing as a collaborative, with each person in the group bringing something different to the process. On stage, their combined experience as seasoned chamber musicians gives a tight knit clarity to their performances. Brother Tree welcome collaborations with other artists and musicians.
