Simultaneous Flight Movement is Laura Cannell's third solo release, following her critically acclaimed Beneath Swooping Talons (FANF 036CD, 2015) and Quick Sparrows Over the Black Earth (2014). Simultaneous Flight Movement was recorded live in one take inside Southwold Lighthouse in Suffolk, UK. A collection of semi-composed, semi-improvised pieces from the edge of England which attempts to move away from formal structure and to re-imagine a sonic landscape unrestricted by time or origin. With a background in medieval, baroque, traditional and experimental music, Laura explores the spaces between ancient and experimental music through improvisation to create new music that is rooted in but not tethered to the past. With the seldom used, rich and evocative polyphonic overbow technique and double recorders styled on early stone carvings, Laura creates a minimalist chamber music, where one player makes all the harmonies, encouraging harmonics and different tones to emerge. Medieval cantigas intertwine with the music of long disintegrated renaissance courts, and real-time compositions produce parallel chord movements which seem to originate from the same, ahistorical place.
