We’re absolutely over the moon that ‘Rites for Crossing Water’ is one of three nominees in the 2023 Ivors Classical Awards in the Sound Art category.

Produced as part of Random String 2021, ‘Rites for Crossing Water’ was part of our Future Folk commissioning strand that aimed to imagine future folk rites and rituals for the Coventry Canal. Crewdson & Cevanne collaborated with Coventry artist and illustrator Jessica Glover to develop the work which also involved several workshops with local residents through our roam+dwell summer programme. The commission resulted in spectacular an outdoor installation for the festival in 2021, as well as an EP of new music on Accidental Records and an AR book featuring Jess’s animations, published by LR, which were both launched at The Tin as part of the Waterways Festival in Coventry Canal Basin in 2022.

We couldn’t be happier for Cevanne, Hugh and Jess, and can’t wait to find out the results in a few week’s time.
