unbound sound 12 & 13 June 2021

Limited tickets are now on sale for unboundsound, a weekend of live new music performance in Aberdeen!

On Saturday evening, music will once again fill the Sanctuary of Queen's Cross Church as musicians from Red Note Ensemble are joined by horn player Richard Watkins for the world premiere performance of a new work by Philip Cashian alongside new works by young Glasgow-based composers Rylan Gleave and Aileen Sweeney.

On Sunday at 2pm, Pete Stollery’s new piece Call celebrates Aberdeen's gradual coming out of lockdown. This community piece for multiple horn players examines our ideas of space, something which has been compromised during various periods of lockdown, as well as the idea of calling, and responding, within space. The main group of horn players perform at the War Memorial on Pocra Quay at Aberdeen Harbour and interact with horn players on the other side of the harbour entrance. 

Red Note return to Queen's Cross Church on Sunday afternoon at 4pm with an edition of their Noisy Nights concerts which provide an outlet to hear emerging new musical ideas and voices this time showcasing new music by neurodivergent composers.

Advance booking is required. Book via the event links below. 

Please be assured that COVID-19 measures will be in place to ensure the safety of our audience members and performers including physical distancing and face coverings. 

We are looking forward to welcoming you back to enjoy live new music at sound!
