An evening of drone, trance-like states, and ethereal sonic spellcasting emanating from the Cornish landscape.

Chloe Bonfield is an artist working and teaching in Cornwall. She works as a painter who uses drawing, text and sound.

The first time I noticed it, I was in a park wearing a yellow uniform. Sometimes it is just the sound at the beginning. I can only describe it now as an ‘unholy’ sound, I can also describe it sometimes as a drone. A drone like an air borne drone, not a warm instrument made drone. Metal slicing air over and over in a circle. Inducing a trance a trance a trance.

Yiskah is a versatile sound artist who explores soundscapes, blending drone and noise music with field recordings to paint vivid sonic portraits of natural environments. Rooted in her Cornish identity, her work reflects the heritage of Cornwall, crafting immersive soundscapes that evoke its rich history.

Elowen is a Cornish singer, songwriter and violinist whose ethereal, compelling vocals and folk style lyrics are steeped in the wild realms of forest, moorland and ocean. Playing original songs as well as covers about life, love and loss, her sound has a spellbinding combination of vulnerability and strength that beckons her listeners to join her on a journey through a vibrant, textural landscape of emotions.
