Selected show reel:
SUITE FOR SOLO VIOLIN AND SOFTWARE ABUSE - LP
In this collision of musical worlds, electronic musician and composer Bethany Ley carves out enough space and light for Kath Roberts’ violin to breathe amongst influences as diverse as birdsong, musique concrète and Indonesian Gamelan.
Suite for Solo Violin and Software Abuse is a collection of nine pieces which share a bedrock of atmospheric granular synthesis. This creates fertile ground for neo-classical violin to harvest some compelling and emotive melody.
Released on Slow Worm Records 2022
THE_EVERYTHING_INBETWEEN - ALBUM
the_everything_inbetween is a homage to Bethany’s approach to sound design and production, classical composition and the Bristol Jazz scene - all of which have informed the sound in a unique way. Collaboration as a method for connection has fuelled the process ~ featuring a stream of influential musicians and friends from the local scene.
Gelatinous synths conversing with classical harp, tarot jazz songs, and celestial fluorescent sound worlds.
P=ARALLEL U=NIVERSE - EP
p=arallel u=niverse is an EP of solo music written, recorded and produced during the Coronavirus lockdown of 2020. Experimental, electrical soundworlds, parallel realities, twilight heartache, and falling through the cracks to the new future collective 1dent1ty.
The project was also an intimate collaboration with artist Naomi Larh - resulting in a series of videos
