New Learning Resource

We are excited to launch our new education resource as part of Climate Fringe Week. Created with support from Chamber Music Scotland, it's full of interactive activities to teach kids about music and climate change in a fun way...and it's completely free!

 

TRANSPLANTED Carbon 

Scotland's natural habitats are incredible carbon stores, but they need our help. Join us on a fun musical journey through meadows, forests and peat bogs to meet the superheroes of the plant world who are working hard to keep carbon safely locked away.

TRANSPLANTED
Studio recording 

In 2014 we commissioned eight composers to write miniature works inspired by native Scottish plants. Over Summer we have been busy recording these and are now delighted to share the results with you. The muse behind this project was Scottish Baroque composer James Oswald, and several of his Airs for the Seasons feature in this collection alongside the contemporary duos.

WATER MUSIC
source to sea

Our new project is underway!

WATER MUSIC source to sea is a musical imagining of the journey taken by a raindrop as it travels along Scotland’s waterways. Field recordings, new commissions and existing works by Bach and contemporary classical and folk composers combine with film and photographic material, creating a sonic immersion in one of Scotland’s most iconic natural resources.
