Stone Drawn Circles – harp, electronics, viola, voice, flutes, double bass and percussion.

‘Stone Drawn Circles’ is Lina Andonovska (flutes), Nathan Sherman (viola), Michelle O’Rourke (voice), Alex Petcu (percussion), Caimin Gilmore (double bass) & Úna Monaghan (harp/sound design).

The ensemble features players from groups including Eighth Blackbird, stargaze, Crash Ensemble and Ergodos.
