Frances Shelley is an established composer and pianist (@francesshelley.com). Matthew Bickerton (@matthewbickerton. com) is a sound designer. The two met in 2015 and found they were both passionate about both sound and the preservation of this planet. They have since created a body of music involving both these elements which is due for release Autumn 2018.
Their most recent performance was at @Latitude Festival where they played the Sunrise Arena Since 2016, they have played at the National Trust’s @Sutton Hoo, performed as part of @Pianoday 2017 and 2018, as well as numerous private events and installations. With ecology and the preservation of the environment central to the ethos of the music they have designed a 'Solar Powered Grand Piano' enabling them to take the music to surprising and inspiring places as well as the concert hall.
"Pianofield blend music and technology to hypnotic effect. Sultry, slow-burning passages give way to rhythmic crescendo and delicate flights. Frances’ lilting piano melodies, at once familiar and mysterious, dissolve in and out of stark minimalism as they converse with Matthew’s vast original soundscapes.
