Purcell Partials Pietist – first album sponsored by FPA

Posted on Updated on

Nathan Bissette, an English/American musician and composer, and Kristin Borgehed, Swedish dito, as well as co-founder of FPA, launched their album PurcellPartialsPietist in November 2016.

Version 2
Performing at the Grassmarket in Edinburgh, Scotland.

The duo was founded a few years ago, in Aberdeen, Scotland. The work is based in traditional singing and playing from central parts of Sweden/northeast Scotland, and  consists mainly of improvisation and microtonality. String instruments and voices are the main instruments we work with.

This work has a practical side, as is shown on this CD, as well as a theoretical, through Kristin’s PhD studies on microtonality in singing. The repertoire includes a variety of tings, from dance music to church music, from lullabies to wordless humming.

The album has been very well received, and we look forward to travel around with this music in 2017. Kristin and Nathan would like to say thanks to the board of FPA for this kind contribution!

Here are links to the album, and also to our facebookpage, where all news about concerts etc appear!

Hi there!
Even though we prefer working at home back in the countryside 😉 this week’s meeting took place in Stockholm. While Astrid has been conducting her consultant work with web strategies for a big urban company, Kristin has presented her folk singing research at the ICTM Sweden. More to find about her research on #libertéegalitétonalité here and on facebook!!

We are currently at a café, planning away! We got some nice invitations for #koraleriet to consider, and also some nice aspects from the ICTM seminar to bring with us into our further work.

Hope to release a film from this very shortly – stay tuned!!

Kristin & Astrid
