Sound piece


Catriona combined her internationally recognised work as an exponent of the Clarsach (Scottish harp) to develop a series of recordings and performances at different locations in and around Huntly. Catriona worked with electro-acoustic composer Alistair MacDonald on unique compositions, weaving environmental, manufactured and musical sounds. The resulting performances were presented in forest and wooded areas surrounding the town as well as to a capacity audience at Christ Church, Huntly. Skimmerin’ stands as a provocative reflection upon our ongoing relationship to nature.

Please ask at the Forestry Commission office to view the work.
