“Choirs of an Earth”, musical performance by Josephine Illingworth-Law, a young English creative, currently in residence at Fabrica.
Drawing on her upbringing singing in chapel choirs and as a catholic chorister, these pieces use the choir as a collective method to weave together both human and non-human voices, melding field recordings and layered vocals in an attempt to redefine the perceived separateness of human and nature.
