Out of the Tunnel
A live performance
About the Event
“Out of the Tunnel,” is a live performance of works from composer Danielle Eva Schwob’s recently acclaimed album of the same name, featuring performances by Grammy-nominated ensemble PUBLIQuartet, harpist Ashley Jackson, cellist Laura Metcalf and more, set to cinematic visuals by acclaimed director and photographer James Mountford (BANKS, Ciara, Chance the Rapper).
Inspired by chapters of personal transformation and by nature’s guiding light, the performance re-imagines sounds from Schwob’s album in a contemporary visual context, bringing classical music to the heights of Fotografiska’s stunning performance space, The Loft.
Join us for an evening of sounds from the depths of the soul and stunning drone-shot visuals from the heights of the sky, in celebration of the launch of the album’s extended edition, the power of nature and tectonic periods of change: an imaginary beacon at the end of a long dark ride through the tunnel.
About Danielle Eva Schowb
Born in London to British + Kiwi and Canadian + French parents and educated in both the English and American school systems before moving to New York alone at 18, Danielle Eva Schwob is a classically trained composer whose musical background is as eclectic as her upbringing.
Part of a new generation breed of composer-performers who cross genres with impact and fluidity, and who comfortably traverse the high art and commercial worlds, the classically trained artist is as at home composing instrumental music for concert halls and film scores as she is crafting gritty art-pop recordings grounded in hooks and fronting rock bands, like the ones she grew up playing in. Across all genres, she is interested in creating immersive, otherworldly sound worlds that take quiet internal experiences and make them dramatic and overwhelming in their emotional arc – a cinematic approach to storytelling, grounded in a British by way of New York sensibility.
