Fusing music, projected images and animation, this immersive experience channels a unique aesthetic inspired by and transpiring underground cabaret

Led by the haunting voice of Wendy Bevan, who in the past has collaborated with David McAlmont, Nouvelle Vague and producer Paul Simm, Temper Temper hark back to the golden age of silent film. Temper Temper's epic sound fuses muscular, glittering blues with old, dusty jazz, inspired by the works of artists such as Antony and the Johnsons, Scott Walker, Marlene Dietrich, Nick Cave, Mercury Rev and Laurie Anderson. Bevan’s otherworldly vocal performance was recently credited as: “Tragic, and hauntingly beautiful” by Vogue.com. Pursuing a multidisciplinary approach, Wendy Bevan and her band create a world of ambiguity that sends a shiver to the core. Temper Temper's soundscape explores the emotion of the Pain of Desire companioned with a mixture of original and archive visuals created and art directed by Bevan, vacillating from serenity to calm, brutal to beautiful, re:ecting the cutting dark side of human desire.
