CoMA Glasgow Projects

Landscape Drones Project Website

We are delighted to have composer and sound artist Duncan Champan joining our team to lead upcoming project.

Over the four online sessions, we will take a journey into the world of shapes, spaces and lines that you see in your every-day surrounding landscapes. We will learn to see these as techniques to generate musical drone material, and pitches. Further explorations will lead us to finding deeper meanings and symbolizm behind the pitch, interval and scale/mode, and creating well-tempered and microtonal pitch-sets. Part of this process will involve going outdoors, and photographing your local horizons.

The project will result in collective composition, which we will perform and premierre at the Make Music Day UK on the mid-summer of June 21st!
