Our 2014 creative commissioning production led by Amble Skuse, Remembered / Imagined, will feature at sound: Scotland's festival of new music this November.

This year’s festival theme is ‘new approaches to traditional music’ and will feature musicians and composers from Scotland and beyond, looking at new ways of writing for traditional instruments and new collaborative works.

The programme

Mr McFall's Chamber with award-winning Gaelic singer Maeve Mackinnon, celebrated author and actor Angus Peter Campbell and electronic artist and Creative Producer Amble Skuse.

Three new works are interwoven with beautiful traditional repertoire and poetry, creating a performance that captures the riches of our cultural history through music and words with live instrumental, vocal and electronic sound.

Scottish traditional musicians and composers teamed up with writers to create new works of music and words inspired by the archive at The School of Scottish Studies, housed in the University of Edinburgh. The archive is a treasure trove of recordings of songs, music, tales, verse, customs, beliefs and oral history.
