We had a fantastic time at the St Magnus International festival 2018 creating an interactive film and performance called sounds of surroundings. We worked with pupils in Glaitness Primary School, Kirkwall Grammar School and a young adult from the connect project to create a day in sound. The result was an eclectic journey which the young people contributed to in a variety of ways, including composition, filming, recording and improvisation. You can watch film clips here and listen to sound recordings of some of the compositions below.
We also discovered a wonderfully written account of the 2017 project in the inclusion newsletter written by Megan Crofts. It is well worth taking the time to read this.
