Nocturnes Wonder is a project conceived and produced by composer Isa Suarez in partnership with CoolTan Arts and with support from Camberwell Arts and Arts Council England.
Launching at Camberwell Arts Festival 2017 (10-18 June), Nocturnes Wonder is an open invitation to join us on a musical journey that runs through the night.

Nocturnes Wonder is a suite of downloadable musical movements produced by composer Isa Suarez about how music can affect our mind, heartbeat and wellbeing.
Combining beatboxing, choral voices, electronic music and orchestral arrangements, Nocturnes Wonder draws out the ways music can affect and reflect our perceptions of reality. Fluctuations in rhythm and melody create shifting sequences, playfully detonating mood changes, adrenaline rushes or the anticipation of wellbeing.
