Nominee for The Ivors Composer Awards 2021, Brigitte Beraha’s early incarnation of ‘Lucid Dreamers’ premiered at London’s Queen Elizabeth Hall as a trio with George Crowley (Melt Yourself Down, Yazz Ahmed) and Tim Giles (Nostalgia 77, Iain Ballamy) in November 2019 as part of the London Jazz Festival, with music written by Brigitte (Kenny Wheeler, London Jazz Orchestra), inspired by the industrial world that we live in.
Now extended to a quartet with Alcyona Mick (Natacha Atlas, Robin Finker) on piano, they released their debut album ‘Lucid Dreamers’ on Let Me Out Records in July 2020. This concert is part of an ACE funded 14-date tour, celebrating the release of their two albums to date, with ‘Blink’ due for release on 13th May 2022. The original music – with or without lyrics – is both melodic and abstract. It draws from the jazz, folk, contemporary classical, free improv and electronic worlds, with atmospheric and open improvisations, exciting grooves and impactful stillness.
