Viridian Ensemble

Viridian is an ensemble of interdisciplinary instrumentalists based in Bristol, who advocate for Womxn in experimental arts from eclectic specialisms and backgrounds. Its members are: Dali de Saint Paul (Vocal), Tina Hitchens (flute), Caitlin Alais Callahan (double bass), Esme Betamax (percussion) and Laura Phillips (16mm films, sound responsive projections, waterphone).

Inspired by expanded film traditions and the free improvisation vanguard (such as Les Diaboliques and Feminist Improvising Group), Viridian performances place sound and digital and analogue images in dialogue, concocting an ethereal blend of image and noise in which utterances and nonsensical languages entwine with collective rhythm, tone, and resonance to reimagine folklore and femininity.
