Aidan and his trio are developing music for a project to be premiered in summer 2018 in collaboration with Scottish visual artists Dalziel and Scullion. The result will take the form of a 45 – 50 minute film accompanied by a music score to be performed live as an installation event. The film will be divided into sequences, each of which will explore the lives of eight very distinct Scottish birds. While in Snape the trio will be experimenting with new music along with existing footage shot in St Kilda last year, which the trio will perform in their Open Session.
