Ongemang: exploring the spaces in between Kit Downes with Tom Challenger & Lauren Kinsella

£15 £15 (SPITALFIELDS MUSIC)

Kit Downes and Tom Challenger have created a collection of interpretive melodies connected by improvising singers – in this event, they are joined by Irish vocalist, improviser and composer Lauren Kinsella.

Ongemang started with many initial individual components – a midnight exploration of song in a church in Salzburg, to a trip to the misty Faroe Islands to witness Kingo singing, to collective improvisations with harmonium during a hurricane in Galway – and during this second phase of the project they add another musical meeting to this journey, in the in-between.
