Flight

4 May 2017 20:00

Flight is a travelling site-specific soundscape influenced and inspired by the migration of barnacle geese from Norway’s Svalbard Islands to Caerlaverock in southern Scotland. Composed by Stuart Macpherson, Flight invites you to explore the impressive, historic surroundings of the University of Glasgow. Using multiple live and recorded sound sources featuring musicians Greg Lawson and Su-a Lee, Macpherson has created a promenade performance that mimics the movement of birds soaring through a series of iconic spaces across the campus.

Shorelines

19 May 2017 22:00 // 20 May 2017 19:00

Inspired by the North Sea Flood of 1953—which left the Netherlands devastated and also took many lives in the UK and Belgium— Shorelines is a music-theatre work, composed by Oliver Coates, performed by the Ragazze Quartet and directed by Josh Armstrong. Acting as both a memorial to those who lost their lives and a meditation on water, this performance centres on the taped testimony of a woman who lost everything to the sea.

Semispecific

1 June 2017 21:00

Drawing on club culture, Trudat Sound & Light’s Semispecific is a night of live electronica and visuals, performed as an improvised DJ-set and using multi-channel audio, projection mapping and a reactive light installation. Combining fractured snapshots of found sound and distorted imagery with hypnotic rhythms and deeply textured sonics, artists Charlie Knox and Euan McKenzie explore the relationship between perception, memory and identity.
