Seventh Harmonic are an all-female neo-classical ensemble formed in London, UK in Autumn 1999 by multi-instrumentalist Caroline Jago, creating sensual euphoric dreamscapes which draw on a great diversity of influences. The music blends an intoxicating kaleidoscope of rhythmic intensity and soaring vocals with ethno-symphonic overtures, defying categorisation yet always beating with a dark symphonic heart. The videos on their Youtube channel augment the visual responses which the music evokes: http://www.youtube.com/user/SEVENTHHARMONICvideo

A self-taught pianist from the age of 7, Dustin O'Halloran's personal histories give us some clue to the thickly-woven tapestries of his music: he has lived in LA (where he studied art at Santa Monica College and formed the much-adored Devics with Sara Lov), Italy (in the depths of rural Emilia Romagna) and Berlin. His arresting, heartbreaking music is as much an elegant exercise in nuance and grace as it is a pure, intuitive, personal expression – and here is where we see some explanation into Dustin's quiet rise to notoriety and his continued ascension.
