Crewdson & Cevanne

Part of The Pumphouse
A rich offering of electronic-folk and avant-pop, Crewdson, known for his self-built electronic instruments, and Cevanne, an award-winning contemporary composer, blend their voices with ‘found sounds’ and new songs recorded on harp and DIY midi-controllers.
Stories of old England, modern throwaway culture, haunted forests and artificial intelligence are interwoven with field recordings of abandoned coal mines, plague stones, NASA space travel, archaeological digs and the deep, threatening hum of a nuclear power station which concludes the record.
Crewdson & Cevanne were shortlisted for the BASCA British Composer Awards in 2018 and will feature on BBC Radio 3 ‘Open Ear’ in May – their new album, Brace, is released on 31 May.
