A clip of my composition Lateral will be included in BBC Radio 4 prog Shaped by the River Clyde. The programme is about artist and humanitarian George Parsonage, and features artist Minty Donald. Many thanks to Minty for including my work.
Minty originally commissioned Lateral as part of High-Slack-Low-Slack-High for Glasgow International Festival in 2012.
Following up that performance on Dixon Street by the River Clyde, I created a studio version, which has been broadcast internationally.

“One Hundred Glass Brains Waking Up is a fictional conversation between two people who begin as strangers. Without any prior social bonds they discover they are free to make each other up. This is escapist fiction pared back to two people in a room looking for a way out of social stultification.”
Performed by: Brighton Upton Trust
Composed by: Nichola Scrutton

Static Flux is a radio and performance collaboration with writer Zoë Strachan, which was initially created as a live studio broadcast for Radiophrenia in 2017.
Static Flux focuses on out-of-time memory states, and how they can be both static and in flux. We are interested in exploring narrative and time through chance encounters with remnants, fragments and the ephemera of past lives. Metaphors for our endeavour include the remnants found in second-hand bags and the pockets of clothing, or in notes scribbled on the back of black and white photographs. There is a melancholy air to these things, but as with any kind of haunting, also the potential for fear, and for deeper connections with our own sense of mortality.

Radiophrenia invited myself and writer Zoë Strachan to collaborate on a Live-to-Air commission. In our collaboration we explored the state of being In Transit and how it disrupts the interior monologues of two people on separate but overlapping journeys of a slightly mysterious kind.
Radiophrenia is a temporary art radio station broadcasting from the CCA in Glasgow. In 2016 it produced a two-week exploration into current trends in sound and transmission arts.
