September 2018 - Fiona Brice String Quartet no 1 album launch at the October Gallery in London for Bigo & Twigetti. 

December 2018 - Poetry Cafe London playing Aaron Parker's two beautiful Minatures 'Binnorie' and 'Mažulyte' for violin, electronics and film. These are based on folk melodies and field recordings. They are beautiful, contemplative pieces. We will be performing them alongside some free improvisation as responses to poetry brought by audience participants.

FATHERHOOD

We recorded strings for the independent documentary film 'Fatherhood' from director Ben Gregor about young people who have filled an empty space in their lives by creating or performing music. In this innovative fusion of documentary and music video, kids from Memphis, LA, New York and London talk about their absent fathers and write and perform original songs about them. The score for this beautiful and moving film has been composed by Michael Blainey. 

OPEN CHAMBER Call & Response projects

December 2017 at St Ethelburga's Centre for Reconciliation and Peace

An evening featuring some amazing talent from several  composers with music by Brother Tree, Fergus Davidson, Fiona Brice, Anna de Bruin, Matt Collins, Dan Hewson and Trish Clowes. Young women writers collective Write Young Things  joined us after creating their responses to the music we performed. Artists Sarah Reddyhoff and Reeve Massey joined us for this project with their visual responses. Call & Response' is a project with Brother Tree, invited composers and artists and members of writers collective Write Young Things. It is cyclical in nature, as it starts with the new music written by our composers, triggering responses from our artists and writers,  further developing when new musical responses to these words and art are then created.
