I have been working with Martin O’Connor on his spoken word performance TheMark of the Beast. The show is on from 13th – 15th April at Platform, Glasgow and in Edinburgh at the Scottish Storytelling Centre on 19th April.
This performance is a culmination of our research and development with the North East Recovery Cafes in Glasgow in 2016. The project was supported by Platform to Health and GRAND.
At that time, I composed a sound installation Good Days Bad Days, incorporating the many voices/stories of participant’s experiences. I have re-visited and re-composed that material for Martin’s solo show The Mark of the Beast.
I’m absolutely delighted and excited to be part of this event performing in a duo with Alex South. We are exploring the music/sound potential of voice and clarinets through improvisation. Opening the evening for a great line-up!
The event is on 21st November 2017 at The Glad Cafe in Glasgow from 8 pm.
Listen out for Sarah Tripp’s Radiophrenia commission online or at 87.9fm. First transmission is at 6pm on 14th Nov 2017 with a repeat broadcast at 6pm on 15th Nov.
“One Hundred Glass Brains Waking Up is a fictional conversation between two people who begin as strangers. Without any prior social bonds they discover they are free to make each other up. This is escapist fiction pared back to two people in a room looking for a way out of social stultification.”
Performed by: Brighton Upton Trust
Composed by: Nichola Scrutton
