Forgotten Futures 2021 Online

In lieu of any real-world Forgotten Futures event in 2021, we've commissioned a number of spectacular performances for you to watch for free online below. Some were recorded in Gallery One at Attenborough Arts Centre, others were recorded at home by artists due to perform at the event.

Forgotten Futures 2021

Natalie Evans

Available to stream Saturday 1st May 19:00

Natalie Evans presents a full set performed on guitar, hard and piano, recorded at home for Forgotten Futures.

Fusing a virtuosic talent on guitar, harp and piano with a distinctive playing style and finely tuned songwriting sensibilities, Kent-born Londoner Natalie Evans’ music glows with a rare self-contained grace, as she wraps her minimalist and deceptively simple lyrical lines in winning hooks and harmonies.

Her debut album ‘Better At Night’ saw her intricate compositions and characterful vocals reaching more ears than ever before on its 2018 release via Small Pond recordings. While winning new fans, her most recent material has also been met with excitement by followers of her earlier work, which includes her debut EP ‘Houses’ (re-issued in 2019), self-released ‘Under The Moon’ single, and guest vocals on Delta Sleep’s ‘Camp Adventure’ amongst other collaborations.

Although she’d had no formal training, a fascination with classical music inspired Evans to learn piano and harp in recent years, her talent and studious approach leading her to achieve an exceptionally high standard. These instruments add to her mastery of the guitar, which began as a teen hobby and became something of an obsession when she discovered the finger-picking style that she has gone on to make her mainstay.

Tom Morris & Jo Quail: For the Benefit of All

Available to stream now

We had some amazing things planned for Forgotten Futures 2020 that for a long time it looked like wouldn't come to fruition. Thankfully, a few weeks ago Attenborough Arts Centre let us in to one of the spaces we would have been using for the event to film a couple of special performances. We can finally bring you a little bit of what this years event would have been like, and what you can expect from Forgotten Futures in 2021.

We commissioned Tom Morris and Jo Quail to produce a site-specific performance for Forgotten Futures 2020, written in response to Kelly Richardson's incredible 'Mariner 9' artwork. We are so pleased that they were finally able to perform it in full in its intended location.
