Claritas are a three-piece vocal ensemble featuring Fiadh Rua Gregg, Jenna Harris and Aleka Potinga. Claritas combine ‘a cappella’ vocals with live processing of their voices, frequently blending with the complimentary strings of the cello. These elements create soundscapes which offer a foundation for the members of Claritas to improvise freely. Their debut project paid homage to Seamus Heaney, where they used his words to inspire and create compositions that demonstrated their admiration of the Nobel Prize winning Irish writer.
This event is artist-run.
