"Fine lines from the violin combine with delicate touches on piano body and strings. Andharad Davies has a growing reputation as one of the finest instrumentalists on the London scene. She has released discs on Absinth, Creative Sources, Simple Geometry, NEA & Emanem, and is a much sought-after improviser. Copenhagen-based Tisha Mukarji, who here works exclusively on the inside of the piano, released her debut solo on Creative Sources last year.

"Angharad Davies is a violinist, one at ease in both improvising and composition, with a wide discography as part of varied range of ensembles and groups. She's a specialist in the art of 'preparing' her violin, adding objects or materials to it to extend its sound making properties. Her sensitivity to the sonic possibilities of musical situations and attentiveness to their shape and direction make her one of contemporary music's most fascinating figures. 2015 has seen her being commissioned for a new work at the Counterflows Festival, Glasgow and premiering Eliane Radigue's new solo for violin, Occam XXI at the El Nicho Festival, Mexico.
She's performed at, the Queen Elizabeth Hall, BBC Proms, Music We'd Like to Hear's concert series, is an associate artist at Cafe Oto, is a member of Apartment House, Cranc and Common Objects, been artist in residence at Q-02, and played live with Tony Conrad in the Turbine Room at the Tate Modern.
