Stef Conner joins contemporary classical ensemble Dark Inventions, singing traditional folk songs, which are juxtaposed with three contemporary works for chamber ensemble.

Here’s what Dark Inventions say about the CD:

“This album takes us on a journey between three sparse yet sonorous sonic landscapes; on the way we meet four itinerant characters who tell their stories through song.”

Recorded (on 27 April 2013) and mastered by Jez Wells at the Music Research Centre, University of York. Produced by Christopher Leedham and Martin Scheuregger.
