Co-directors Megan Clifton & Johanna Bramli founded the 7-piece all women noise and feedback choir ‘The Larsens’ in 2016.

The Larsens work by singing, speaking and abstracting sounds, sometimes amplified and augmented through audio devices, sometimes raw and unamplified; to create sonic landscapes using a combination of composition and structured improvisation.
The Larsens explore how the female voice is responded to, heard/not heard and how one’s voice defines who one is in the eyes of others. They seek to recreate aspects of internal experiences and spark conversations by challenging perceptions around the woman’s voice.

Black-wigged and sat in a circle, The Larsens play up to witchy stereotypes then conjure powerful spells in the dark, carefully lit space, brilliantly combining voice-based experimental music with actual documentary voices - THE QUIETUS
