As the COP26 summit takes place in Glasgow, Red Note Ensemble’s latest commission brings together a collaborative multi-media commission by Chilean composer / double-bassist Manuel Figueroa-Bolvarán and Red Note’s Weston-Jerwood Creative Fellow, Scottish-based Martina Corsini, that highlights the contrasting scarcity and abundance of water in Chile and Scotland.
Chile has a very severe water scarcity, exacerbated by land-management practices due to the production of food (including avocados) for export. This, contrasting with a potentially dangerous water abundance here in Scotland, allows the composers to explore the character of water in both places in relation to the environmental crisis, and has inspired them to create a new multi-media artistic work that is both powerful and direct, with a clear message for us all.
Join us on the 8th November, 6pm at Wellington Church for this fantastic production! This concert has unreserved seating. Please follow the government guidelines in relation to COIVD. When moving about the venue, please wear a face covering. When seated, please be mindful of social distancing.
Presented in collaboration with Music in the University.
