CANCELLED Jennifer Wicks Extended Compositions

We regret that this event has been cancelled.

Moving image that sits somewhere between drawing, animation and film; made using techniques including punching and drawing directly onto 16mm film stock serves as a site for exploring the visualisation of rhythm, acoustic phenomena, temporality and the interplay, expansion and disposition of sound, space and time.

The films are interpreted live as musical compositions: rhythmic dialogues composed and directed by Wicks and performed by double bass BBC Scottish Symphony musician Jeremy Ward. The piece is further developed through a process of repeatedly recording and playing back audio to create a continuous circular movement until the human performance disappears and is replaced or dominated by environmental music. Repeated recording and replaying in an enclosed space (the CCA theatre) enables Wicks to manipulate the sound using the space as another instrument until what remains is the moving image and the resonance left behind from the double bass.

The work investigates the layered and complex liminal space that occurs between film and sound and how the synchronization of sound and image evolves and changes to alter perceptions of time and memory. Over time the audience witnesses sound as a physical, material, and spatial experience until the sound dissolves into the space.

Over the course of the installation the sound will metamorphosis from the immaterial and invisible to the physical and object-like, generating a more tangible experience of space. And because sound is characteristically temporal it forces the viewer to actively listen, observe and experience the layering, synchronicity and chance outcomes that occur within the space and the intersections between sound, image and sculpture.

CANCELLED Small Trans Library Writing Group for Trans & Nonbinary People

This event is now cancelled.

Join a writing group that aims to help trans, gender-non-conforming (GNC ), non-binary, genderfluid or questioning people think and talk about writing in a guided but co-operative way.

This workshop series will involve writing experiments, explanations of editing techniques and a discussion about trans narratives, writing under capitalism, and the hypocrisies at play in mainstream publishing systems that simultaneously tokenize and prohibit trans voices.

While the group is led by Rosa-Francis Jones, it is also intended that the group changes and grows as per the needs of attendees.

POSTPONED The Fallen Angels Club Siobhan Miller

This event has been postponed. A new date will be announced shortly.

One of Scotland’s foremost singers, Siobhan Miller is an exceptional talent, renowned for her unique vocal style paired with her evocative song-writing. Miller creates music with detail and rich melodies that combine the sounds of indie and alternative music with sounds from her roots in folk music.

Growing up in a musical family, she was immersed in traditional song and learned from many of Scotland’s finest source singers in her early years as a performer. Miller won the 2018 BBC Radio 2 Folk Award for Best Traditional Track, whilst also nominated for Folk Singer of the Year, and is the only ever three-time winner of Scots Singer of the Year at the BBC Alba Scots Trad Music Awards.

Her three solo albums have received widespread critical acclaim, whilst her hotly anticipated fourth release is due in Spring 2019. Mercury (2018) is Miller’s first album of entirely original material, and was recorded in Glasgow with many of her frequent collaborators, including producer Euan Burton. It also features songs co-written with Lau’s Kris Drever and Admiral Fallow frontman Louis Abbott. Flight of Time (2015) and Strata (2017), were both nominated for Album of the Year at the Scots Trad Awards, highlighting her extensive range through traditional, contemporary and self-penned material, as well as her “delicate, nourishing vocals and lyrically rich compositions” (The List).

Miller releases her fourth album in spring 2020 - following three critically acclaimed solo releases - touring with Innes White (guitar/mandolin), Charlie Stewart (fiddle) and Euan Burton (double bass).
