Scottish Independents

Scottish Independents


This democratisation of the intellect is our inheritance (not least since we have already paid for it), our creative commons; it is what enables us to innovate and to engage transnationally.

This is an invaluable and ambitious international role for interdependent organisations to play.

The history of artists’ cultural self-determination is linked and made stronger by that of making real the promise of political self-determination.

with Torsten Lauschmann, Dr. Martin Parker, Dr. Robert Dow and Dr. Neil Mulholland

Noise happens … in music, in art, in life. Composers, artists and performers join together to discuss sound and hearing across creative practices that recognise sound has moved beyond the concert hall, the recording studio and the gallery and into all aspects of our creative lives.

Torsten Lauschmann is an independent composer, sound artist and film maker based in Glasgow. Martin Parker is a composer, sound artist, improviser, director of the University of Edinburgh’s MSc in Sound Design and recently premiered his opera for cinemas, “Songs for an Airless Room”, featuring Phil Minton and Joby Burgess. Robert Dow is a composer of acousmatic music and a Senior Research Fellow at the University of Edinburgh. Neil Mulholland is Director of eca’s Centre for Visual and Cultural Studies.
