They have performed live and recorded with artists such as Frank Ocean, Jed Kurzel, Jonny Greenwood, Steve Reich, Justice, Terry Riley, Thom Yorke, Mica Levi, Actress, Beck, William Basinski and Richard Reed Parry.

Each session in the Purcell Sessions series comprises a workshop where composers and players work together to test and develop new methods, followed by an evening performance of the works created alongside pieces from which the artists have taken inspiration.
