Havoc


In 2018-19, Sophie Stephenson and I were awarded a Fusion grant by Help Musicians UK. We used the opportunity to explore some new ways in which traditional step-dance could be used as a route into composition, improvisation and instrument design - spending time working at Studio Ostaig on the Isle of Skye, Carnie Cottage on Lismore, and Dancebase in Edinburgh. We were joined in this by the incredible Mairi Campbell and Eilidh Munro, and with remote sound design contributions by Amble Skuse.

Sophie and I are currently (2020) looking at ways to continue some of this research remotely, and working towards a hopeful return to live performance in 2021.
