Brigitte Beraha’s early incarnation of ‘Lucid Dreamers’ premiered at London’s Queen Elizabeth Hall as a trio with the ‘inventive’ George Crowley (Melt Yourself Down, Yazz Ahmed) and the ‘high energy and powerful’ Tim Giles (Nostalgia 77, Iain Ballamy) in November 2019 as part of the London Jazz Festival. The music, written by Brigitte, is inspired by the industrial world that we live in. Now extended to a quartet with ‘world class’ Alcyona Mick (Natacha Atlas) on piano, the quartet released their debut album ‘Lucid Dreamers’ on Let Me Out Records in July 2020 with a second album due for imminent release. The original music – with or without lyrics – is both melodic and abstract. It draws from the jazz, folk, contemporary classical and electronic worlds, with atmospheric and open improvisations, exciting grooves and impactful stillness.
