Low and Dangerous: Sound Festival Scotland

Research output: Other contributionpeer-review


A late-night performance of electronic music addressing the two main themes of this year's festival – the double bass and the climate emergency.

Sit back and wallow in pieces which celebrate low frequencies, including the sound of the double bass, interspersed, in sharp contrast, with excerpts from Peter Cusack’s powerful Sounds from Dangerous Places.

This concert will be recorded by BBC Radio 3 for broadcast at a later date.
