Blowing Their Own Horns

Our Echo event is an evening of multidisciplinary presentations in response to Victim of Geography, with invited guests Red Note Ensemble.

A longstanding part of the exhibition programme at DCA, Echo is designed to throw new light on the works displayed in our galleries by inviting other artistic voices into the building to respond to each show.

As part of this instalment of Echo, we have invited musicians from Red Note Ensemble to bring to life some of the curious instruments from St Cecilia’s Hall, the home of the University of Edinburgh’s musical instrument museum, to be played in the company of Clare Woods’ new paintings.

This performance, titled Blowing Their Own Horns, will include a commission by composer Jim Sutherland, specifically written to bring these big-personality instruments together.

Supported by Museums Galleries Scotland Partnership Fund.

Featuring Paul Stone, Mark O’Keefe, Andy Saunders, Danielle Price
