The Whirlies – early sketches
August 16, 2008 Leave a comment
I have a commission for another piece from the Scottish Philharmonic Orchestra, for a concert at Òran Mór in Glasgow on 17 November. It’s going to be called ‘The Whirlies’, which is a famous roundabout in East Kilbride; to be the first movement of a suite dedicated to the, er, roundabouts of East Kilbride!
The piece is essentially for strings, but – and I haven’t exactly told them this yet – I intend to turn up and do some live electro-junk impro along with the piece as well.
