NORTHERN is a new jazz project led by the internationally acclaimed composer and cellist Maja Bugge in collaboration with film maker Adam York Gregory and field recordist Hervé Perez. The artists are presenting the places that we love and know through a musical and visual encounter with our everyday. Playfully and with sense of humor Bugge journeys the audience through an audio-visual environment that holds beautiful tunes, striking images and ambient electronics.
So far the band has been resident in Lancaster, Manchester and Barrow creating commissions for Manchester jazz festival, Full of Noises and Lancaster Arts.
