In the making

Duncan Strachan

Duncan Strachan

We have commissioned Duncan Strachan to write a piece for our Ensemble in Residence GAIA. "Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird" is inspired by Wallace Stevens' 1917 poem of the same title, and is a rumination both on our connection with nature, and on the beauty and wisdom of the everyday and commonplace.

Kim Moore

We have commissioned Kim Moore to write a piece for our Ensemble in Residence GAIA, to mark the end of her first year as our Artist in Residence. "A song we destroy to spin again," for violin, cello, and live electronics, is a culmination of Kim's thoughts and experimentation during the Covid-19 lockdown.

We are always looking for new talent to work with on upcoming commissions, workshops, and events. Compose for the top chamber musicians in Scotland, inspire young minds, and showcase your talent.
