LISTEN NOW: Are You Here?
by Mari Johanna Sainio & Laura Campbell
Available to listen to on streaming platforms.
Inspired by the themes of unity and connectedness, ‘Are You Here?’ combines classical, experimental and electronic sounds.
This Brighter Sound project will be Both Sides Records first release, which falls in line with their aim of supporting and promoting the work coming out of Brighter Sound’s gender equality programme Both Sides Now. Mari & Laura were both chosen for the first ever Both Sides Now International Commision in 2019, where they met for the first time and collaborated to create live tracks, which were then developed, produced and mixed by Mari and Laura – with musicians from Liverpool and Finland adding additional strings and woodwind to create the ‘Are You Here?’ album.
‘This project has been a massive opportunity to develop as a musician and producer, working with Mari, Lonelady, Both sides Records and Brighter Sound’
