I composed a soundscape for Teine Èiginn/Need Fire – an installation created by performer and artist Dougie Strang for the Hidden Door Festival 2015.

The teine èiginn or need fire was lit as part of a protective ritual, enacted during times of illness amongst people and/or livestock. Records show that the ritual was still in use in remote communities in the Scottish Highlands up until the end of the nineteenth century.
