Following their critically-acclaimed 2014 Fringe debut, leading new music group Ensemble Thing returns to Summerhall and the Made in Scotland Showcase to perform John De Simone’s powerful and moving new work Independence.

Blending Scottish and post-minimalist music with spoken word, Independence is an autobiographical exploration of cultural and personal identity in Scotland from the perspective of its composer, an English-born Scottish-Italian whose grandfather, John MacCormick, was instrumental in the founding of the Scottish National Party.

“Flawless playing… One of the most memorable events in the festival.” Pete Stollery, Chair of Sound Festival.
