All We’re Skilled In

All We’re Skilled In

is a film, sound art and heritage project run in partnership with Plantation Productions, Glasgow Film Theatre and Scottish Screen Archive. Erin Scrutton and I worked with young carers in Glasgow to create atmospheric sound tracks for silent film clips using original historical footage of the Govan shipyards and the people who worked there. The film below, made by Jamie Dempster, is a short documentary of the project itself. The film has had several screenings, including the Glasgow International Film Festival.

The Arias

Opera Of The Seas
Opera of the Seas by Margaret Macdonald Mackintosh


Aria for Breath and Glass (4’09) and Aria for Voice and Plastic (4’42) are a pair of stereo, fixed medium works. The Arias were made for a Charles Rennie Mackintosh Festival concert held at the University of Glasgow. The compositions emerged as a material response to two gesso ‘Opera’ panels (Opera of the Winds, Opera of the Seas) created by Margaret MacDonald (Mackintosh), and drew further inspiration from the plastic debris crisis in the pacific ocean.
