Martin O’Connor/The Mark of the Beast

Mark of the Beast 1

The Mark of the Beast is a collaboration with writer/theatre-maker Martin O’Connor that explores issues/ideas around alcohol and addiction in Glasgow.

Between November 2015 to March 2016, Martin and I undertook a period of research and development, commissioned by GEAC Platform-to-Health and GRAND (Getting Real About Alcohol n Drugs). Working with the North East Recovery Community.

At that time, I composed a sound installation Good Days Bad Days, incorporating the many voices/stories of participant’s experiences. For The Mark of the Beast, I re-visited and re-composed that material for Martin’s live solo show.

Live-to-Air Commission

RadiophreniaRadiophrenia Logo-NEW invited myself and writer Zoë Strachan to collaborate on a Live-to-Air commission. In our collaboration we explored the state of being In Transit and how it disrupts the interior monologues of two people on separate but overlapping journeys of a slightly mysterious kind.

Radiophrenia is a temporary art radio station broadcasting from the CCA in Glasgow. In 2016 it produced a two-week exploration into current trends in sound and transmission arts.

Radiophrenia is currently broadcasting 24 Stops.

24 Stops was written and performed by Sarah Tripp and composed for radio by Nichola Scrutton

It is very exciting to hear the chimes as they were intended when originally created by Sarah Tripp. Furthermore,  Radiophrenia 2016 festival is a perfect setting to listen to them, every hour on the hour for 24 hours amongst such a wealth of radio and sound art…

From November 2015 – March 2016 we worked with participants from six recovery cafes in the north east of Glasgow (NERC – North East Recovery Community) as part of our research and development.

Sarah Tripp/24 Stops

24 Stops Radio Artwork

I was delighted to collaborate on 24 Stops with  Sarah Tripp

“The work is a sequence of hourly chimes, one for each hour of the day. The chimes combine percussion and spoken word to reflect the character of a given hour and mark the passing of the day.

‘24 Stops’ was written and performed by Sarah Tripp
Composed for radio by Nichola Scrutton.
Percussion  was performed by Nichola Scrutton, Fritz Welch and Mark Vernon and recorded by Iain Donnelly.

‘24 Stops’ was developed on the inaugural Radio Writing residency at Camden Arts Centre with the support of University College London Hospital Arts.”
