Join us at Dovecot for a work-in-progress performance and visual installation from Sea Change and Cape Farewell including a vocal piece by Hanna Tuulikki and short film It’s the Skin You’re Living In By David Harradine/Fevered Sleep.
6pm – 9pm FREE

Hanna Tuulikki’s Air falbh leis na h-eòin | Away with the birds is a body of work investigating the imitation of birds in Gaelic folk song. It explores the music of the Western Isles of Scotland, the delicate nature of island-life, the relationships between bird, man and the land.

Guth na eòin | Voice of the Bird is the vocal composition at the heart of Air falbh leis na h-eòin. Hanna will perform a work-in-progress version of this piece, joined by vocalists Nerea Bello and Lucy Duncombe.

Guth na eòin evokes the sounds, movements and interactions of several species of birds. It reinterprets Gaelic archive, fragmenting and re-building extracts of song & rhyme into a soundscape that grows out of and responds to the Hebridean landscape. It is being created for performance outdoors on Canna, the smallest of Scotland’s small isles.

Hanna Tuulikki is a musician, visual artist and illustrator whose primary focus is the human voice. As a vocalist she performs, composes and records solo and group works, as well as fronting Glasgow-based bands Nalle and Two Wings.

Air falbh leis na h-eòin is produced by Trigger in association with Cape Farewell. It is part of the Sea Change programme.

Break

It’s the Skin You’re Living In is a multi-format film project, that explores and challenges existing images of climate change. Shot in a series of locations from the islands of Svalbard in the High Arctic to a kitchen in a house in London – via the beaches and headlands of Barra and Vatersay – the project suggests that climate change isn’t a matter just concerning distant landscapes and threatened animals, but is an ever present part of everyone’s daily lives.

Directed & Edited by David Harradine, Performed by Robin Dingemans, Produced in association with Fuel.

Following the sharing there will be an open panel discussion with artists and producers.

Refreshments will be provided
