NYX is a collaborative drone choir who, with its visceral arrangements and original compositions by music director Sian O’Gorman, looks to reshape the role of the traditional female choir. It tests the limits of organic and synthetic modulation to explore the entire spectrum of collective voice as an instrument. Rakhi Singh is a violinist, collaborator and composer. She released her debut EP on Icelandic label Bedroom Community in 2021, leading Manchester Collective, the group she co-founded, to their BBC Proms debut weeks later. Seb Gainsborough, also known as Vessel, is a frequent collaborator of Singh’s. Over recent years he has shifted his practice from the strictly electronic into the instrumental realm, developing expansive new works, adopting the uncanny ground between the organic and synthetic for the likes of Somerset House and Aldeburgh Music.
