Many thanks to Alasdair Campbell, AC Projects, CCA Glasgow and all at Tectonics Glasgow 2019 for supporting Rough Breathing.
…”Downstairs in the Old Fruitmarket, Scottish vocalist Nichola Scrutton breathed deeply into a mic, the sounds mirrored by clarinettist Alex South across the room. In between, the audience were caught in a dexterous layering of breath that felt like the wash and roll of the sea.”…
Excited to be performing some of our Rough Breathing project this weekend at Tectonics Festival in Glasgow with Alex South. We’ll be in the Old Fruitmarket at 4pm on Sunday 5th May. Here’s a link for more info…

I’m really delighted to say that Alex South and I will be performing Rough Breathing at Tectonics Festival 2019. The BBC SSO festival is on 4th and 5th May at City Halls and Old Fruitmarket in Glasgow.
Rough Breathing is a collaborative performance project with vocalist Nichola Scrutton and clarinettist Alex South. This sound clip is from a free improvisation performed as part of a sharing with an invited audience at the end of a residency at CCA Glasgow in November 2018.
Many thanks to Alasdair Campbell and all at the AC Projects/CCA Creative Lab Residency. And thanks to Keith Bruce at The Herald for including us in this review.
During our residency Alex South and I explored different elements through the Rough Breathing context – live electronics, audiovisual, and psychoacoustic and sonic relationships between voice and clarinet in addition to breathing practices informed by Pranayama.
We posted some blogs at AC Projects Counterflows, and shared some work-in-progress at an informal gathering at CCA near the end of the residency.
Huge thanks to Alasdair Campbell/AC Projects, Creative Scotland, Alex Misick, Kenny Christie and all at CCA Glasgow, and our guests in the lab, sound designer William Aikman, filmmaker Wendy Kirkup and dance artists Joan Clevillé and Solène Weinachter.
