New Music in Scotland...

Pilgrim of Curiosity

Pilgrim of Curiosity is a collaborative work for Wind Quintet, with light art by Glasgow-based artist, Trent Kim. It explores issues of equality and amalgamations of culture, through a number of musical memories and references. It has been performed around Scotland as a concert work (with accompanying prints by Trent), and as a performance installation, with light art, movement and pre-recorded sound. This performance is the culmination of a residency in Busan.
