Gaze is Ghost Deutshcland Tour, New Single ‘Selkie Skin’
Colliding Lines are proud to present Gaze is Ghost, performing in Germany for the first time.
Laura McGarrigle is a pianist, composer and songwriter born in Northern Ireland. Under recording name Gaze is Ghost she creates gently beautiful, otherworldly music – performing live with piano, voice and vocal loops, and now newly accompanied by percussionist Casey Miller.
The shows follow release of new single ‘Selkie Skin’, the first from her eagerly anticipated album due in April. Her music is meticulously composed, and the songs have been in process for a long time. Along the way she has written musicals, composed soundtracks for animatronic installations in vast London tunnels and performed with dancers, poets and video artists. Her latest works build upon the artists’ soundworld, retaining the atmosphere and emotional resonance of previous releases Revolvere / Murmuration (2014) and Feather and Bone (2017) while migrating towards more natural, earthly instrumentation.
Produced by Colliding Lines, the Germany tour spans from February 13th – 16th with three entirely distinct concerts – including contemporary dance performance (Leipzig), live visuals with MOUTH (Halle), and a new art space opening festival in Berlin.
