Maja Bugge cello and loops / Hervé Perez sound design / Adam York Gregory film
NORTHERN is a new jazz project led by the internationally acclaimed composer and cellist Maja Bugge in collaboration with Adam York Gregory and Hervé Perez.
Over the past 12 months the band has been resident in Lancaster, Manchester and Barrow recording the sounds of these places. Expect to tap your feet to the rhythm of Atkinsons coffee roaster, or rediscover the hiss of the M6 accompanied by improvised harmonies on the cello. Audiences of all ages will delight in the playful and surprising sounds and images from the places we know and love.
