High-Slack-Low-Slack-High

We are delighted to profile another GI project with works relating to the Clyde - Nothing About Us has been working closely with High-Slack-Low-Slack-High to ensure that there are no diary clashes between the two projects - so that visitors to the festival (and maybe even the participants!) get to see both works
 
High-Slack-Low-Slack-High

A suite of sound works presented as part of Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art and made in response to the tidal range of the River Clyde, Glasgow with artists:
John Cavanagh, Minty Donald/Nick Millar, Douglas Morland, Nichola Scrutton and Hanna Tuulikki.

Monday 23 April - Hanna Tuulikki - Bell’s Bridge/Millenium Bridge, G51 - 3.15pm

Tuesday 24 April
- John Cavanagh - Riverside Museum, G3 8RS - 3.45pm

Wednesday 25 April - Nichola Scrutton - Dixon Street, G1 4AL - 4.05pm

Thursday 26 April - Douglas Morland - Clyde north waterfront between Victoria and Glasgow Bridges, G5 - 4.45pm

Friday 27 April - Minty Donald/Nick Millar - citywide - 5.25pm (and throughout the week)
 
Saturday 28 April - all five works - Trust Hall, Clydeport Authority Headquarters, 16 Robertson Street, Glasgow, G2 8DS - performances at 5pm and 7.30pm

-  a vocal work performed with megaphones, whose musical structure derives from tidal data - a composition using sound samples recorded onboard Clyde-based vessels, including a nuclear submarine and a Dutch barge - a vocal tone poem accompanying a ritual dredging of river water, later used in a performance on musical glasses -  a chorus of ships’ horns interweaving the noise and pulse of the Clyde with the rhythms of the city - a piece for voice and ‘signal’ sounds that takes its temporal form from flashing navigation beacons on the Clyde -

All events are free but booking is essential for the Clydeport Headquarters performances as the Trust Hall has a limited capacity.
