Cover Art by Tess
Tess Cunningham’s filmic new release Songs Without Words drops online 12/7/19.
A collection of beautiful melodies, arranged simply with unique vocal production techniques, reflect the feeling of London – and the pull of home.
Born in Melbourne, Australia, Tess is influenced by Prokofiev, Elgar and Australian composer Peter Sculthorpe. Always drawing vivid inspiration from her days as a ballet dancer, she composes with choreography in mind. Speaking of her creative process, Tess said: “My imagined dances feed into my compositions – through dance and music I’m reminded that life cycles and changes wherever you are in the world. I like to think that I’ll bloom wherever I play my piano.”
Interested in visual art as an exploration of music, a visual accompaniment for Onward combines the perpetual motion of the music with a moving feast for the eyes, evoking the colours and textures of the Australian landscape.
Songs Without Words is streaming from Friday 12 July, and available on Bandcamp and iTunes.
