"Cluny Strachan's score, oscillating between dreamy chorales of a Howard Skempton and the incessant rhythms of Goldie, bespeaks a composer who knows what he wants and is happy to plunder as many different types of music as he needs to get it." Robert Dawson Scott, The Guardian

Meadow: A sculpture and sound collaboration between sculptor Doug Cocker FRSA, and composer Cluny Strachan.
Meadow: an interactive multichannel electeomagnetic sound score and sculpture collaboration with Doug Cocker FRSA, and me. It is being exhibited at the Royal Scottish Academy Exhibition 2018 in Edinburgh from May 5th to June 6th. I will be performing and developing projects over the course of the month. If any of you are in Edinburgh during this time pop in and say hi. I have made a prototype telecoil headphone that has no external components and a multichannel electromagnetic sound system. The wearer puts the headphones on and can explore the otherwise inaudible individual sound ‘fields’ embedded in the work. The score acts as an extension of the sculpture’s electromagnetic condition, where garish colour blurs and animates the way we think about how we see 3 dimensionally and makes us think about the hidden electromagnetic world around us. It will be fun.
