Repertoire Sub Mari, by Martina Corsini and Manuel Figueroa-Bolvarán

Join Red Note and friends as they play and discuss their latest multi-media new commission - “Sub Mari” by Martina Corsini and Manuel Figueroa-Bolvarán. 

As the COP26 summit takes place in Glasgow, Red Note’s latest commission brings together a collaborative multi-media commission by Chilean composer / double-bassist Manuel Figueroa-Bolvarán and Red Note’s Weston-Jerwood Creative Fellow, Scottish-based Martina Corsini, that highlights the contrasting scarcity and abundance of water in Chile and Scotland.

Chile has a very severe water scarcity, exacerbated by land-management practices due to the production of food (including avocados) for export. This, contrasting with a potentially dangerous water abundance here in Scotland, allows the composers to explore the character of water in both places in relation to the environmental crisis, and has inspired them to create a new multi-media artistic work that is both powerful and direct, with a clear message for us all.

Please note, we have two performances, one in Perth and one in Glasgow

Our Glasgow concert is proudly presented as part of The Dear Green Bothy, a collaborative cultural programme from the University of Glasgow’s College of Arts showcasing creative and critical responses to climate emergency.
