We also recorded and produced an album and short film of this event which is available for free on request by emailing



  • “This was a fantastic event. The material was strong and characterful and the performances were excellent.”
    Diana Burrell, Composer, Artistic Director for Spitalfields Festival

    “I thoroughly enjoyed watching, hearing and experiencing Tonal’s performance. The mood of the evening was both moving and amusing. Fresh, lively music with some very haunting moments entertained and captivated the audience. It is great to see young artists having such determination to do something relevant, refreshing and interesting”
