Concert

Classically trained pianist, violinist, producer and composer Poppy Ackroyd caused a stir in the neo-classical scene with her albums Escapement and Feathers, as well as her participation in Hidden Orchestra. Recommended by the greats of the genre Hauschka and Nils Frahm, this extraordinary artist was signed to One Little Indian Records – home to artists such as Björk – in early 2017. In spring 2018, Resolve will be released as her first LP on her new label.

Poppy Ackroyd re-thinks the piano and violin completely, using the entire resonating body to create sonic worlds that sound much larger than the minimalist line-up would suggest. Piano strings are played with picks and drumsticks, the bodies of instruments are misappropriated for percussion, and sounds are creatively re-arranged digitally. For the first time, she's working on one of her solo releases with collaborators, including: Manu Delago (Bjork, Cinematic Orchestra) on the hang; Mike Lesirge (Bonobo) on the clarinet, bass clarinet and flute; and Jo Quail on the cello.
