The Arias

Aria for Breath and Glass (4’09) and Aria for Voice and Plastic (4’42) are a pair of stereo, fixed medium works. The Arias were made for a Charles Rennie Mackintosh Festival concert held at the University of Glasgow in 2006.The compositions emerged as a material response to two gesso ‘Opera’ panels (Opera of the Winds, Opera of the Seas) created by Margaret MacDonald (Mackintosh), and drew further inspiration from the plastic debris crisis in the pacific ocean.
