Landscape Drones


Landscape Drones

Call to composers, musicians, sound-artists, to join collaborative project!

We are delighted to have composer and sound artist Duncan Champan joining our
team to lead our upcoming project with CoMA Glasgow.

Over four online sessions, we will take a journey into the world of shapes, spaces
and lines that you see in your every-day surrounding landscapes. We will learn to
see these as techniques to generate musical drone material, and pitches. Further
explorations will lead us to finding deeper meanings and symbolizm behind pitch,
interval and scale/mode, and creating well-tempered and microtonal pitch-sets. Part
of this process will involve going outdoors, and photographing your local horizons.

The project will result in a collective composition, which we will perform, record, and then
broadcast at Make Music Day UK on the 21st June!

Session will be held on Zoom, on:
Sunday 23 May, 10am – 12 noon
Monday 31 May, 7-9pm
Tuesday 8 June, 7-9pm
Monday 14 June, 7-9pm

Please sing up for the whole block on
