Alter Festival



Scottish-born, Copenhagen-based producer, composer, vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist Clarissa Connelly joins Alter once again after three years to perform her newest material.  Signing to Warp in late 2023 following two self-released records, the experimental folk artist looks to century-spanning references (the divinity of Hildegard of Bingen’s voice work, to the poetry of William Blake) with which to amalgamate her particular practices, compositions and musical styles.

World of Work comes together as a dream-like synthesis of Nordic folk song, Celtic myth, medieval grimoires, modern pop music, as well as experimental composition and studio practices. It explores the sacred and the profane with the guidance of 20th-century French philosopher Georges Bataille. Her tender vocals and layered arrangements meld to form a body of work that is contemplative and ultimately restorative.
