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.

To mark the opening of the 2015 Edinburgh International Festival and the 50th anniversary of the Edinburgh Festival Chorus, John Adams’s mesmerising choral work 'Harmonium' will be combined with a series of spectacular animations, projected onto the outside of the Usher Hall.

Examining the effects singing has on both performer and listener, the animations have been created by 59 Productions working with the Centre for Design Informatics. Performed by the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and the Edinburgh Festival Chorus, conducted by Peter Oundjian.
