Jamie Hamilton

Composer & Sound Artist

Nattsong (2021)

Work by Caroline Bergvall, with sound design/collaboration by Jamie Hamilton, compositional fragments by Gavin Bryars, and soprano Peyee Chen.

Nattsong is a new multi-sensory stage work in which poet–performer Caroline Bergvall takes an immersive journey into language, refuge and the night. Fusing words and music, poetry and performance, songwork and electronic projections into a singular, dreamlike and mesmerising whole. Nattsong is both personal and political – at once an immersive performance and, where feasible, a sound installation for multiple languages.

Premiered at Turner Contemporary, Margate. Supported by Cement Field Arts, Estuary 2021, and Arts Council England.
