I am working with Martin O’Connor on the soundscape for A Govan of the Mind, part 2 of his new show Theology. Martin will be performing in The Arches Behaviour Festival in April at The Pearce Institute, Govan. A Govan of the Mind is a series of poems celebrating the beauty of our everyday language. Part 1, Theology, is a Glaswegian-dialect version of the Catholic Order of Mass, with composition by Oliver Searle. Design: Rachel O’Neill, lighting design: Kate Bonney.
I’m looking forward to the Scottish Music Centre’s Composition Marathon 2013. The event takes place over the weekend of 23th March, with final performances at The Arches from 3 – 6 pm on Sunday 4th March. Tickets are available from The Arches and more info here.
