I am Hector MacInnes, I'm a sound artist and a musician from
the Isle of Skye on the west coast of Scotland, currently
based between there and Bristol.
My work is always interested in place - having grown up on
an island, it couldn't be otherwise - but often not in place
as an identity to be discerned, but rather as a process or
field to be participated in, modelled, dreamt about or
disrupted. I work with installation, composition,
speculative design and sonic fiction.
In the last few years I have presented solo and
collaborative work at Sound Festival in Aberdeen,
Edinburgh's Hogmanay, An Lanntair Arts Centre, Taigh
Chearsabhagh, the Made In Scotland Showcase at the Edinburgh
Fringe, the National Library of Scotland (online) and the
EFDSS. I have conducted residencies with the Bothy Project
and Creative Carbon Scotland.
As a multi-instrumentalist I have recorded and performed
with a wide range of musicians including Mylo, Mairearad
Green, Jason Singh and Anne Martin, and I am a proud member
of The Dead Man's Waltz, Oat Perigord and Havoc.
I have produced, recorded and mixed artists including David
Littler, Ingrid Henderson and Iain MacFarlane, Beware of
Trains and Dàimh.
I have devised and delivered workshops, tuition and
participative works for the University of the Highlands and
Islands, ATLAS Arts, Feisean nan Gaidheal, Historic
Environment Scotland, Young Films and others.
