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.
I am very excited to have been selected for the Magnetic North Rough Mix Residency. The residency will be taking place in Perth Theatre, Perth, Scotland for two weeks in January 2019. Read the announcement of participating artists at MN Rough Mix 2019
There will be a sharing of work on 18th January at 6 pm at Perth Theatre. All welcome – free but ticketed from Horsecross Arts.
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.
I am super delighted to be part of the 2018 Space/Time creative retreat with Magnetic North Theatre Company. This is arrival day at the wonderful residency centre Cove Park in the west of Scotland. The sunset is stunning.
My fellow artists are Eoin Carey, Pat Law, Ross Whyte and Sharron Devine and the residency is facilitated by Magnetic North’s Artistic Director Nicholas Bone and Alice McGrath, Creative Director of Red Bridge Arts.
During the residency we will be taking an in depth look at our various practices through the question ‘how does an artist keep developing?’.
