Northern Flyway 23-Sep
September 23 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
“A truly remarkable experience…Powerful, emotional….still reeling in the most lovely way”
Set against a backdrop of gorgeously haunting visuals, Northern Flyway immerses the audience in music that moves through ethereal to dark to uplifting as scenes of wild Scottish landscapes give way to underwater footage of gannets diving, evocative seascapes and starling murmurations.
Musician and ornithologist Jenny Sturgeon and Inge Thomson composed a suite of music and songs, exploring the ecology, folklore, symbolism and mythology of birds and birdsong and incorporating extensive field recordings from composer and birdsong expert Magnus Robb.
They are joined in this live performance by singer and multi-instrumentalist Sarah Hayes (Admiral Fallow) and phenomenal vocal sculptor Jason Singh.
This work was created in 2018 and this performance on Skye will be the very last.
