Synergy presents Shards

Synergy presents Shards

Shards is the vocal-led project of singer, composer and producer Kieran Brunt. Having recently signed to Erased Tapes, Shards formed in 2016 when the Barbican were looking for a choir to collaborate with Nils Frahm for their Possibly Colliding festival. Building on the success of the performances, Nils Frahm invited Shards to perform on his breakthrough album All Melody, they have since appeared on records by Michael Price, Masayoshi Fujita, Luke Howard and more. Since forming Shards, Brunt has been keen to present voices in a non-traditional way. Rather than aiming for seamless blends or absolute precision, he is interested in highlighting the differences between voices, exploring and celebrating their unique textures. Shards’ debut full length will be a collection of short, sonic paintings, where each burst of colour adds to an overall picture of the emotional confusion of early adulthood: the uncertainty, the excitement, the terror and the relief. These pieces are about looking above, below and inside oneself, and about questioning our place in a world which is becoming more and more perplexing to comprehend. Shards is Kieran Brunt, Lucy Cronin, Sarah Latto, Bethany Horak-Hallett, Kate Huggett, Chris Huggon, Jack Lawrence-Jones, Rose Martin, Augustus Perkins Ray, Oli Martin-Smith, Josephine Stephenson and Héloïse Werner. 18+
