Crewdson & Cevanne is a duo project alongside Cevanne Horrocks-Hopayian, an award-winning contemporary composer. A rich offering of electronic-folk and avant-pop, their voices blend with ‘found sounds’ and new songs recorded on harp and DIY midi-controllers.
Crewdson & Cevanne were shortlisted for the BASCA British Composer Awards in 2018 and have featured on BBC Radio 3 ‘Open Ear’ in May. Their debut album is being Released by Accidental Records in May 2019 Stories of old England, modern throwaway culture, haunted forests and Artificial Intelligence are interwoven with field recordings of abandoned coal mines, plague stones, NASA space travel, archaeological digs and the deep, threatening hum of a nuclear power station which concludes the record. The humour and melancholy which runs through the UK’s Folk tradition finds itself here in saturated technicolour and manipulated by a host of electronic instruments with LEDs flickering. The ’Concertronica’, ‘OddBox’ and infamous ‘Sonic Bonnet’ (a wearable tech headdress) have propelled the duo's live shows at the Union Chapel, LSO St Luke’s, the National Portrait Gallery, and the Handel & Hendrix House Museum, among many others. The album was mixed by Dilip Harris who has worked on records by King Krule, Sons Of Kemet and Mount Kimbie, and was mastered by award-winning engineer Mandy Parnell, a regular collaborator with Bjork, Max Richter and Sigur Rós.
