I’m delighted to be on a residency at Q-O2 in Brussels for two weeks. See more info at Q-O2.

My priority will be to reflect on Night Vision – a new work-in-progress originally developed at Rough Mix 2019 with Magnetic North Theatre Company. That residency culminated in a live performance….

My reflections will focus on how Night Vision moves forward. If time allows, I will also continue working on a series of visual images that emerged from the source texts as a separate thread.

Rough Breathing – The Herald

Near the end of our CCA/AC Projects Residency we held an informal event in the Creative Lab. We shared a performance of work-in-progress and had a wonderful Q and A/discussion.

Many thanks indeed to Keith Bruce for including Rough Breathing in this nice piece about CCA Glasgow and the Counterflow Festival 2019.

Thanks to John Cavanagh for this performance photo.

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.

Space/Time – Magnetic North

Version 2

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?’.
