“From pure sensation to the intuition of beauty, from pleasure and pain to love and the mystical ecstasy and death — all the things that are fundamental, all the things that to the human spirit are most profoundly significant, can only be experienced, not expressed. The rest is always and everywhere silence. After silence that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music”.
— Aldous Huxley
Paul Cheneour and Ansuman Biswas weave a musical synergy that comprises audience, time, place and being. They bring their full consciousness to the place they find themselves. This is music full of ‘whereness’.
Paul and Ansuman have been playing together in various contexts since 1996 and over the years they have followed their own individual journeys, weaving together contemplative practices and inspirational music and gaining prestigious acclaim.
Throughout these journeys, they have both maintained a devotion to the live moment, a responsiveness to place and time. On their debut album, released in September 2020, Paul and Ansuman collaborated with Maureen Wolloshin (oboe / cor anglais) & Alistair Zaldua (violin, electonics) to create a sound that's been (un)cultivated through spontaneous improvisation; the essence of a shared moment distilled into music.
