Viridian is an all-female ensemble based in Bristol, a dialogical blend of image, voice, cello and double base. They describe themselves as being "inspired by stories of keening, magic, and hysteria to infuse an ethereal blend of audio-visual improvisation."


Laura Phillips

Laura Phillips’ (b.1986, Bristol) work investigates obsolescence and precarity as narrative devices. Her work explores the complexity of resonance and the incongruence between sound/image, often using a mixture of photochemical processes, found sounds and digital imagery.

Recent performances include live editing of her video and 16mm prints in a dialogical performance with musicians Viridian. Key structures within the work include improvisation, polyphony, and collaboration.

Upcoming exhibitions include The Gallery, Plymouth College of Art (both 2018).
