THE BEAUTIFUL MACHINE is a 15-piece vocal ensemble, directed by Jennifer Bell. The core members are creative devisors and are each musicians and songwriters in their own right. The ensemble plays out the 3-dimensional elements of Jennifer's compositions, creating soundscapes that roam across the space.
Their practice is experimental and adventurous, with emphasis on a method that includes physical training and focus on well-being. Embedded in this practice is the philosophy that the economy of performance should be based on a sincere conversation with the audience, and a spontaneous, emotional engagement with the songs.
THE STAFF CHOIR is made up of adventurous members of business staff who join us for the ride, by participating in a voice workshop led by Jennifer Bell, with the opportunity of performing in Bread & Butter.
