Event description

Description

Cryosphere is an epic musical and visual journey into the Inchindown oil tunnels in the Highlands of Scotland, which hold the world record for the longest echo in the world. This extended music video weaves stunning archival footage of the North Sea oil rigs with evocative original music composed for the space. Making music at Inchindown is like painting with sound: creating giant sonic gestures in the space, which build up and bleed into each other and lose their meaning as they become blurred. This corrosion of sound in the space becomes deeply symbolic, questioning the human and environmental sacrifices made in the search for oil.

The film was created by Lucie Treacher, a composer and artist from Sutherland, with music and filming contributions from Joaquim Badia and Catalin Filip. You can watch the trailer here: https://vimeo.com/333561234

The screening will start a 18:00 sharp (the film is 27 minutes long) after which there will be an informal Q&A and discussion and a short performance by Lucie Treacher. There is also be a bar and there will be an opportunity to stay and have a drink and a chat in the unique 504 arch space after the screening (till 10pm).

Tickets are free (donations welcome) but please book in advance through eventbrite as there are only a limited number of seats available.

This project is supported by Creative Scotland.
