“Most definitely a big hit! I’ve been all over the world checking out audiovisual performance, Albion Voice is quite simply one of the best I have ever experienced. Not many artists achieve a full blown beginning to end immersive experience, its a rare thing”. Stuart Brown BFI
Conceived and directed by new media artist Matthew Hardern (aka Glamorre) this work has charmed and excited audiences internationally.
These shows are the DEBUT of an epic new finale created in collaboration with interactive supremos Kimatica

Bishi & The Dark Magic of Angela Carter
Internationally acclaimed pianist, Joanna MacGregor was commissioned by The Estate of Angela Carter to set some of her unpublished poems to Music, to commemorate Carter’s 20 year death anniversary. Bishi was then especially invited to perform these songs in a world premiere.
The evening entitled, ‘The Dark Magic of Angela Carter,’ closed The Bath Festival 2012 & included readings by Marina Warner, one of Carter’s oldest friends. The stellar line up included Kiku Day, Genevieve Wilkins, Martynas Levickis & actress Harriet Walter.

Welcome to the new website everyone!
It’s the new website - brand new - so may be a bit sticky for a few days – but we’ll soon iron it out.
This is a very exciting week with the preview of the album going out for the 1st time – you can hear it here and download selected MP3s for free!
We also have two art exhibitions of new pieces on show in London this month.
The Queen portrait and ceramics are in the official floatilla exhibition in The Pump House Gallery in Battersea park. The A-side B-side Gallery in E London are presenting the album alongside our prints, ceramics and textiles – a number of which are available from our new shop – so take a look ….
