Murray's Monument, A712, Dumfries & Galloway.

Sanctuary is a public art event within the Dark Sky Park of Dumfries & Galloway. This 24-hour site-specific laboratory explores privacy, identity, place and space beyond the reach of networks. Installations, radio transmissions, screenings and performance serve to create a temporary community.

The Dark Sky Park is a specially designated area that suffers from no light pollution. It is remote, beautiful and crucially for the artists also ‘electronically dark’. At the core of the event will be The Dark Outside FM, a hyper-local radio station that premieres new work and then deletes it.

Atmosphere | Haxan on Hallowe'en

Häxan

Saturday 31st October 2015, 10pm.
Reid Concert Hall, Bristo Place, Edinburgh EH8 9AG

Join us on Hallowe'en for our Atmosphere of Häxan (1922) with live score by the improv ensemble of the Edinburgh Film Music Orchestra. Based partly on a study of the Malleus Maleficarum, a 15th-century German treatise on the prosecution of witches, Häxan is a study of how superstition and misunderstanding can lead to hysteria.

Director Benjamin Christensen's lengthy and meticulous production period made the film the most expensive Scandinavian silent film ever made. Banned in the United States and heavily censored in other countries for what were considered at that time graphic depictions of torture, nudity and sexual perversion. Bring it on.

Why Don't You? | Concrete Antenna

Concrete Antenna

1st March to 30th September 2015, Mon-Sat 10am-5pm.
Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop, 21 Hawthornvale, EH6 4JT

Alt-w alumni Tommy Perman & Simon Kirby with Rob St John have made a sound installation for the new landmark tower at Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop. Sound gathered from audio archives and specially made field recordings will rise, fall, break apart and splice back together across multiple speakers in the tower, evoking the site’s history.

Using a range of unusual production techniques derived from the tower itself, the recordings – foghorns, train whistles, gas work demolition, birdsong, construction work, wind in fishing boat sails and many more – are slowly reshaped in the piece, coalescing from their original form to something new, musical and celebratory.
