Theology – written and performed by Martin O’Connor
Theology was nominated for a CATS Award 2013-14 in the Best Music and Sound Category
I was composer/sound designer with Martin O’Connor on the soundscape for A Govan of the Mind/Theology. The show was first on at The Pearce Institute, Govan as part of The Arches Behaviour Festival in April 2014.
The show is in two parts: Part 1, Theology is a Glaswegian-dialect version of the Catholic Order of Mass, with composition by Oliver Searle, performed with a local male choir brought together for the production; and Part 2 A Govan of the Mind is a non-narrative epic poem celebrating the beauty of our everyday language.
Design: Rachel O’Neill, lighting design: Kate Bonney, choir leader: Matt Regan. See here for full team and more info.
