  • Summerhall 1 Summerhall Place Edinburgh, Scotland, EH9 1PL United Kingdom (map)

A meditation for cello, electronics and video, performed by Emily De Simone.

This hour-long programme includes: Michael Gordon’s Light is Calling, which was composed close to Ground Zero in New York in the months following September 2001, performed alongside Bill Morrison’s stunning film of the same name; Thomas Butler's Replaceable Parts for the Irreplaceable You, which explores the symbiosis of humankind and its machines; Shona Mackay's new audiovisual work Cloud Hands, which draws on Tai Chi and meditative practices as a means to explore the physical self in absentia – the sensations of mind and body embodied in musical material; and Velvet by Kate Moore, a piece inspired by the movement of light on cloth as depicted in Renaissance painting – the vitality of the material conveyed inside a still frame. The programme also includes Hannah Imlach's artist film Fieldwork, which documents a series of sculptural instruments inspired by peatland ecology and restoration in the Flow Country (Caithness and Sutherland), and a musical response to this film by composer John De Simone.
