Kit Downes and Tom Challenger have created a collection of interpretive melodies connected by improvising singers – in this event, the Irish vocalist, improviser and composer Lauren Kinsella who specialises in sean-nós, the highly intricate traditional Irish vocal style. 

Ongemang started with many initial individual components – a midnight exploration of song in a church in Salzburg, to a trip to the misty Faroe Islands to witness Kingo singing, to collective improvisations with harmonium during a hurricane in Galway – and during this second phase of the project they add another musical meeting to this journey, in the in-between. 

Kit Downes  piano, harmonium, cello 

Tom Challenger  saxophonecassette player/sampler 

Lauren Kinsella  voice
