ALATI (2nd show)


Brigitte Beraha – Voice & Electronics

Chris Dowding  – Trumpet & Loops

Dave O’ Brien – Piano / Keys



ALATI are a trio led by Norwich-based trumpeter Chris Dowding, with the wonderful vocalist Brigitte Beraha and versatile pianist / keyboardist Dave O’ Brien.

They perform settings of various poets, including acoustic settings of Alice Oswald and Colin Simms, and electronic settings of poems by Andrew McMillan. They have performed around the UK, including several times at ClerkenwellARTSlab.

Tonight they will be performing a new collection of settings of poems about the gyrfalcon and goshawk by Colin Simms, exploring a world of loops, electric keyboard and lyrical melodies.

Individually, they have performed with trombonist Annie Whitehead and Babelfish, as well as their own projects such as Dave O’ Brien’s Porpoise Corpus.
