Alison Cotton is a viola player based in London working in composition and improvisation. As well as her recent solo work, she is one half of the Walthamstow based songwriting partnership, The Left Outsides. She spent almost the last 2 decades performing in bands and collaborating with other musicians.As well as the viola, she uses an array of other instruments (her voice, harmonium, percussion, recorder, omnichord, shruti box and piano) to create long, haunting folk drones. Many of her pieces are created for, and named after spaces, whether real or fictional, and often of another time.
Alison Cotton presents The Portrait You Painted of Me, a new 6-track album – her first for Rocket Recordings. Like Alison’s previous solo albums, the touchstones of her immersive sound are viola, harmonium and voice, merged together to create a rich suite of songs.
