I’m really delighted that on 18th August 2019 my track Wave Shift is first up in the new season of Each Morning of the World, a soundscape project produced by Stéphane Marin in France .The digital album is called South Asia PhoNographic Mornings. One new track will be broadcast each week over 20 weeks until the final album is released in December. Broadcast details can be found through the Bandcamp link below.
Many thanks indeed to Stéphane for inviting me to contribute the track and also the visual artwork for the album cover/track. I also recorded the voice intro and outro for the season’s radio broadcast each week.
This version of Wave Shift is a re-working of a longer piece originally produced as part of an installation following a UZ Arts Residency at Sura Medura in Sri Lanka.
To listen to all the tracks on the digital album please go to Each Morning of the World Bandcamp. All donations for downloading and streaming go to the World Forum for Acoustic Ecology (WFAE).
…”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.
The starting point for Night Vision is a series of non-narrative texts captured through an experimental writing practice in the middle of the night lying down in a semi-conscious, or liminal, state.
This is a very different artistic approach for me. Early inquiries were focused on selection, how to interact with the texts, and what happens when these words/sounds are given voice off the page?
The work was initially developed at Rough Mix, Magnetic North’s creative development programme. The residency was held in Perth Theatre in January 2019. Big, big thanks to Magnetic North and the artists and performers involved in the residency. Thanks to Lorna, Neil, Ian and Laurie for the first performance sharing of Night Vision. And thanks to Lise for recordings, chat and tech support.
