Laura Cannell’s discography has continually focussed on a rootedness to nature, in particular, the sparseness of the English countryside in East Anglia.
Yet, drawing on classical and trad folk sounds and instruments, describing herself as ‘anti-classical’, she plays using the unorthodox technique of an overbow (bow restrung around the body of the violin) to create minimal and stark timbres, her music is inherently idiosyncratic and modern in a way that belies assumptions about rural England perhaps.

RECKONINGS The new album from Experimental Violin Duo Laura Cannell & André Bosman features 6 tracks that were recorded in single takes in the medieval church of St Andrew’s in Raveningham, Norfolk, UK. A small stone church at the edge of the marshes and reedbeds of East Anglia. Echoes of 12th century monophonic songs mingle with re-animated and imagined voices of long sleeping Saxons. The duo’s improvisations bring the secular back into the sacred space. Reckonings was recorded through the seasons with wind rattling, sun burning and snow melting.
Laura was interviewed for The Arts Hour on BBC World Service backstage at LSO St Luke’s in January 2018. Broadcast on 19th February 2018. LISTEN HERE Featuring: Laura Cannell, Mira Calix, Ipek Gorgon, Sarah Nicolls and more.
