Abrupt Encounters

Abrupt Encounters Changing Room Residency

Abrupt Encounters/ Orientation
Out There: Sonic Adventures in Space

Changing Room Gallery, The Tolbooth, Jail Wynd, Stirling
The exhibition continues until 15th of December 2012
















For the past two weeks I’ve been one of the artists in residence at the Changing Room gallery in Stirling. Along with visual artist Emma Bowen, live artist Jane Pitt, musician Claire Docherty and the Abrupt Encounters artists, we’ve explored the rich architecture, history, sights and sounds of the ‘top of the town’.  Artists have responded to the many sound worlds of this environment – both real and imaginary – through musical scores, sound recording, sound drawing and animation.

Abrupt Encounters is a new inclusive live arts programme developed by a collective of creatively engaged participating artists with learning disabilities.  The first public manifestation of this work will evolve in the Changing Room as the gallery becomes an operative base for exploring public spaces in Stirling and in Callander.
