Dreamy-voiced misty melodies from a collector of instruments and weaver of songs.
Doors 8 pm
Bell Lungs (aka Ceylan) weaves layered vocal harmonies, electric violin, omnichord, guitar, field recordings and instrumental loops together into a psychedelic, post-folk soundscape musing upon rural idylls, post-industrial heartlands & online culture infused with psychedelic, improvisational and folk elements.
Live performances sometimes involve visuals and movement, and bell lungs is known for being an endearingly natural performer who creates immersive sound environments that transport listeners to other planets.
David Keenan of The Wire deemed Bell Lungs’ vocals “elemental”, and RaveChild said she had “a truly remarkable voice, like cut quartz”.
“…vocal harmonies scattering a dreamlike layer over a built soundscape of darker sounds, weaving many different elements into her tracks” – The Fountain
Ceylan is known for collaborating with poets, scientists, kinetic sculptures, artists, dancers, film and theatre-makers, and has performed in the UK, USA, Spain, Germany, Sweden and Italy, in venues common and uncommon, including art galleries, transport museums, double-decker buses, ancient ruins, 12th century churches, a disused grain silo, Tudor houses, a Napoloeonic fort and a hydroelectric power station.
