Explore the romance and reality of the sea courtesy of Aberdeen Harbour's live electronic information system. By tracking the location of ships, the constantly updated names of the most recently arrived and most recently departed vessels are juxtaposed on the Music Hall's Stepping In space screen, creating a form of poetic writing.

Irish artist Cliona Harmey's work attempts to interrupt the speed of this instantaneous data stream and return it to the speed of movement of real entities in space. The names include references to Scots and Nordic culture conjuring up historical figures and distant places in this localised version of her previous work Dublin Ships (2015).

You're invited to a weekend in the country on the estate of Sir William McCordle. But better beware, secrets will be revealed, and it appears that everyone, both above and below stairs, has an axe to grind with our distinguished host.

Director Robert Altman brought together a fine ensemble cast for this 2001 production. Written by Julian Fellows, it's a study of the British class system in the 1930s, all wrapped up in a murder mystery worthy of Agatha Christie herself.

Resono Cupar

Release Date: 14th March 2019
Pre-order on vinyl and digital download now.

This sound art and music project took place in some of Scotland’s most interesting acoustic spaces. The concept was to compose, perform and record compositions specifically for a series of particularly reverberant locations using impulse response digital audio technology.

Resono was performed inside Cupar's massive fifty eight metre high concrete silo, built in 1964 by the British Sugar Corporation, and in the nave of the Sir George Gilbert Scott designed St. Mary's Cathedral in Edinburgh of 1879. Both exceptional spaces for sonic experimentation.
