sound, Woodend Barn and Braemar Creative Arts Festival presents
St Margaret's Church, Braemar
"Aberdeen-based composer Ross Whyte and Glasgow-based folk singer/guitarist/composer Alasdair Roberts collaborate musically for the first time. A sound/Woodend Barn residency in the village of Braemar in the Cairngorm National Park gave them the opportunity to explore the history, landscape, folklore and musical heritage of that location, researches which informed the musical work they have created together. Building on Ross's practice in the field of electroacoustic composition as well as on Alasdair's interest in the folk song culture of Scotland in general, the residency has provided an opportunity for both artists to broaden their own musical ranges in the creation of work which explores and engages with notions of tradition in a fresh, exploratory manner.
