Symphonie Shenanigans, folktronica soundtracks & remixes. Most commonly found in costume and attending festivals, shows and events as a minstrel.
Recently described as "like a folky Nine Inch Nails", GurdyBird combines a number of instruments, from virtual synths and drum machines to zither and her beloved hybrid symphonie hurdy-gurdy in her recordings. She is based in the South West of Cornwall and composes her own pieces and puts her folktronic-medieval-industrial stamp on covers of traditional tunes. She had her first full on stage performance in May 2014 at the Exeter Phoenix. GurdyBird's sound contains many layers, and she is very much inspired by the darker aspects of history, folklore and a certain motion picture that was filmed close by! She is also often found unplugged and let loose in events and festivals. GurdyBird's physical EP, "Different Ships, Different Long Splices" is due to be released during 2014.
