London/Oslo-based duo BirdWorld is a musical partnership between Gregor Riddell and Adam Teixeira. With a simple acoustic instrumental set up alongside electronically manipulated field recordings and a variety of traditional percussion including numerous kalimbas, the duo weaves between ambient electronic, contemporary classical, world music and jazz improvisation creating soundscapes both natural and otherworldly.
Since meeting during their respective Banff Centre for the Arts Creative Residencies, the duo has gone on to perform across Europe with highlights including a Union Chapel concert filmed and recorded by NTS Radio, an electronic film score commissioned by London Contemporary Orchestra and collaborating with Streifenjunko, Harpreet Bansal, Alex Stuart, Vilde&Inga among others. Birdworld’s track ‘After Rain’ is included in the August ’18 edition of The Wire Tapper and they will perform at BBC ‘Open Ear’ LSO St Luke’s in October. They will release their debut album UNDA towards the end of 2018.
