Laura Cannell's fifth album The Sky Untuned was recorded in one take at St Andrew's Church, Raveningham, Norfolk, UK in December 2018. The seven tracks were composed and developed during a hectic period of commissions, tours and musical adventures. The Sky Untuned takes as it's starting point the theory of the music of the spheres, in which the universe is constantly making sound that humans cannot hear. The music is teased out of the land and sky and performed using Cannell's signature minimalist chamber sounds, utilizing extended instrumental techniques of overbowed violin (with deconstructed bass viol bow wrapped around the violin to produce drone and melody), scordatura violin tunings, and double recorders (inspired by medieval stone carvings).
