Artistic Directors Series #008: ESKA

Share

Brighter Sound is delighted to announce an artistic residency with Mercury Prize-nominated singer and multi-instrumentalist ESKA.

Brighter Sound is looking for 15 talented emerging musicians, dancers, filmmakers, photographers, actors, performers and visual artists who embrace creativity and invention to take part in a four-day residency with ESKA from Thursday 25 May to Sunday 28 May inclusive.

The residency will be entitled, “Are You Here?”, and participants will collaborate with ESKA to create and record new music, performance and visuals that will be showcased at Manchester’s iconic music venue Band on the Wall on 28 May.

Zimbabwe-born, London-raised singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist ESKA will lead a four-day residency for 15 emerging musicians, performers and visual artists from across the UK.

ESKA defies categorisation, blending soul, folk-pop, jazz, electronica and blues. Her twenty-year career has taken her around the world, collaborating with artists including Grace Jones, UNKLE and Tony Allen. In 2015, ESKA released her self-titled debut album to rave reviews, earning a Mercury Prize nomination

We asked ESKA to describe what excited her about this opportunity:

“For us, art is not an end in itself … but it is an opportunity for the true perception and criticism of the times we live in.” – Hugo Ball, founder of DADA, 1916.

This is art’s ‘call to arms’! The barometer of success of this process will be how we are able to challenge ourselves and our audience to think…and think again about the current times we are living in. Working across various art forms, I hope this will also be an opportunity for collaboration, to get a different perspective on the role and function of our art, to challenge notions of performance and the role of the audience in response to our creations. If you, like me, are struggling to grasp what’s going on in the world, here is a chance to make a response to that. Excited? So am I.” – ESKA

“It’s the sort of opportunity that money can’t buy… that can give someone the boost they need for stepping on into the next generation of British music” – Bethan Morgan-Williams, previous residency participant.
