In Residence | Ertha by Tawiah and Al Moore
Ertha is a concept album, created by Tawiah and Al Moore, collaboratively through a process of storytelling and musical interpretation. Through a series of original writings and poems Al tells a story of the human journey as one of “getting lost in order to be found”, suggesting that, despite unavoidable suffering, there is great hope in this; it is by navigating darkness that we find light. Tawiah composed music in response to these writings.
The album depicts Ertha’s life from birth to death; her journey represents that of the individual and the collective, we also hear from the ever present, objective Universe.
produces and co-creates interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary work that is bold, experimental, and just.
Through In Residence, we work with contemporary, visionary artists to bring their ideas and concepts to life through conversations, space for rehearsals and workshops, along with presenting long runs of their work.
