First in an irregular season of informal, intimate events celebrating the marginal territories bordering contemporary, classical and experimental music staged in the Bar at The Queen’s Hall.
For this first session, Chris Connelly and Michael Begg perform New Town Nocturnes, their emotionally charged, elegiac invocation of Edinburgh in the 1980s. Michael also presents some sonic archaeology, and Linda Buckley performs a solo set for laptop and voice.
Chris Connelly, a stalwart of the many guises of industrial music - inc. FiniTribe, Ministry, RevCo - returns to Edinburgh for his first show in over 30 years.
Michael Begg is an award winning composer whose music is located in the place where formal composition and electronic erosion meet; a liminal space coloured by longing and discomfort.
Glasgow based Linda Buckley is one of the most exciting Irish composers to emerge in recent years. She has a particular interest in merging her classical training with the worlds of post punk, folk and ambient electronics.
