A 12-person vocal group, the leader of which is vocalist, composer and producer Kieran Blunt. The project was created in 2016 during a search for choir members for a performance with Nils Frahm. The one-time collaboration resulted in an invitation to join the recording of Nils Frahm’s “All Melody” album, and later on other cooperation proposals from artists such as Michael Price, Masayoshi Fujita, Luke Howard and others. Shards present the abilities of human voice in a completely unorthodox way. Instead of pursuing fluent combinations or absolute precision, they emphasize the differences and discover unique textures. The group’s debut album was released at the end of August on Erased Tapes.
