After a tumultuous past few years, spanning giddy creative highs and profound troughs of ill-health, the Scandinavian-born, Scottish-based multi-instrumentalist Marit Fält describes her New Voices composition, Irrationalities, as “an uncensored stream of consciousness”, charting these thrills and terrors while reflecting on their personal and artistic impact. Best known through her award-winning duo with fiddler Rona Wilkie – recent co-composers of a new live score to Norwegian silent movie Laila - Fält has drawn on both cross-genre and cross-cultural influences, seeking to promote discussion of mental health issues among the folk community. She features here mainly on mandola, leading an eight-piece ensemble of strings, accordion and clarinet.
