The Silo, Cupar Trading Estate, Cupar KY15 4SX

Saturday 4th June 2016, 8pm. FREE
St. Mary's Cathedral, Palmerston Pl., Edinburgh EH12 5AW

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

Resono will be 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.

Alt-w Fund

Alt-w

DEADLINE: 12 noon, Tuesday 1st September 2015.

Initiated by Scottish Screen in 2000, the Alt-w Fund is for practitioners based in Scotland to make and develop new artworks, devices and creative applications that challenge the notions of what new media creativity can be.

The fund supports artists to explore experimental and interactive practice, make use of technology as both medium and message, and recognise the changing role that digital culture has in our society.

Alt-w: Blush Response

Festival of Architecture 2016

www.travellinggallery.com

As part of the Festival of Architecture 2016 the Alt-w Fund has commissioned a series of new works by artists based in Scotland for a touring exhibition onboard the Travelling Gallery. From August 2016 the exhibition will include work by ~ in the fields, Charles Young, Dennis & Debbie Club and The Bothy Project with Torsten Lauschmann.

Each work has two elements; a smaller work for the Travelling Gallery and a larger work to be installed at a specific location in Scotland. For one day only during the tour the Travelling Gallery will visit the locations of each of the larger works, and due to their proximity, the two elements of the work will ‘blush’ in response to each other.

Crinan Canal

Cycle 11 Alt-w Production Award -
~ in the fields
www.in-the-fields.org

Opened in 1801 the Crinan Canal in Argyll & Bute connects Loch Gilp with the Sound of Jura by providing a much shorter route between the Clyde and the Inner Hebrides than going around the Kintyre peninsula.

Vessels pass through fifteen locks as they navigate through the canal. ~ in the fields will take live data relating to each lock and create a kinetic parametric architectural structure in response, at the mouth of the canal in Crinan.

Paperholm 281

Cycle 11 Alt-w Production Award -
Charles Young
www.paperholm.com

An exploration of architecture through the daily production of tiny models from 200gsm watercolour paper. A new building or structure is designed, made, recorded and published online each day, often as an animated gif.

The models will be combined into an installation that presents a city located on an imaginary archipelago. Visitors to the Travelling Gallery will be behind the wheel on the bridge of a ship sailing towards these islands.

Pig Rock Bothy

Cycle 11 Alt-w Production Award -
The Bothy Project
www.thebothyproject.org

The Bothy Project will commission new work by Torsten Lauschmann for Pig Rock Bothy at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art in Edinburgh and develop a companion work for the Travelling Gallery.

These two works will explore emerging LED and laser technologies which Torsten Lauschmann feels challenge notions of hierarchy between seemingly primitive and intelligent uses of light.

Through ideas important to both The Bothy Project and Torsten Lauschmann, regarding romanticism and human nature, this project will pair back these technologies to reveal their basic construct.

NEO BRUTES

Cycle 11 Alt-w Production Award -
Dennis & Debbie Club
dennisanddebbie.club

Dennis & Debbie Club are a Glasgow-based digital art duo specialising in video-animations & installations. Convinced that within the virtual, fantasy, ideology and reality collide in the most horrifying and stunning of ways, they are not digital escapists, they just want to abandon reality.

Their newest computer generated installation re-imagines remnants of Scottish Brutalist architecture as the headquarters for an utopian movement: the NEO BRUTES – a fever dream of resurrected Modernists-gone-radicals that are now expanding into virtual reality.
