We’re back! Join us for a live session this Sunday, October 31st.
Naviar Virtual is a monthly online event hosted by Naviar Records, which aims to bring online the spirit of Naviar’s yearly physical events, currently on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
NV is an excellent opportunity to showcase the works of Naviar’s community to a global audience and give artists a chance to share their music during these unpredictable times.
Simon McCorry (interview + live set)
Originally born in London to mixed Indian/British heritage, McCorry trained in cello at The Centre for Young Musicians & Morley College then studied philosophy at Durham University, he is now based in Stroud, Gloucestershire.
His work is a rich combination of field recordings, adept loop based cello compositions and atmospheric improvisations that explore the rich sonic possibilities of the cello through a host of treatments and effects chains. The results of these experimentations are diverse to say the least, from droning stillness and devastating harmonic simplicity to the abstract microtonal atmospheres. The sound recalls post classical work from greats such as A Silver Mt Zion at their most plaintive, and Stars of The Lid at their most majestic.
