Water is one of Scotland's most iconic and precious resources. This immersive performance follows a raindrop from source to sea, blending photography and field recordings with music by Bach and contemporary classical and folk composers.

DEBUT ALBUM

ISOLA

Created in collaboration with composer Fergus Hall, Isola [pronounced ee-so-la] shines a spotlight on contemporary Scottish classical music and also draws on the talent of a number of celebrated Scottish writers, with narration and poetry by Alexander McCall Smith and Hamish Henderson.

The album features two large works for violin & cello by Fergus Hall alongside music by other distinctive new voices in the contemporary classical scene: Aileen Sweeney, Rylan Gleave and Sonia Killmann.

Past Projects

TRANSPLANTED
sounding Scotland's wild plants in music

An exploration of Scotland's plant life featuring eight commissioned works for violin and cello duo, inspired by Scottish Baroque

composer James Oswald's botanical

compendium Airs for the Seasons.

You can read blog posts written by each composer describing their creative process.

We have recently created a studio recording of the music from this programme and also a learning resource for primary aged children called TRANSPLANTED Carbon.
