Glasgow-based performance artist Garry Williams designed a soundtrack designed to diffuse late-night violence. He collaborated with police and pub owners to play the music via an outdoor mobile sound unit between 10pm-2am over the weekend. When a fight occurred, his helpline was called and he would activate the music to aid dispersal.

A DVD of the work is available from Deveron Projects.
