Alex Rigg and Guy Veale Sporopollen

Alex Rigg (Oceanallover) is collaborating with Guy Veale (Brendworks) to look at the relationship between sound, movement and the environment. This collaboration will look at sound as a creative force: sound becoming a cause for and not a result of movement. The project began as part of the Environmental Arts Festival Scotland, for which we presented the work at Clatteringshaws Dam, Galloway. This was made possible through the EAFS team and with kind help and permission from both the Forestry Commission and Scottish Power. The audience will be given wireless headphones with a choice of three channels presenting a complex and interlocked score designed by Guy. Ambient sounds from a variety of sources will be combined with secondary sound interventions made for the wider landscape. The performance is a combination of sound layers with a visceral and intense performance by Alex Rigg that is fuelled by and reacts to the audio, with the audience able to select their own soundtrack.

Alex Rigg Alex studied Fine Arts at Glasgow School of Art and at the University of Ulster and since has had a prolific career in practicing various artforms. As well as having thirty years of practical experience in building large46
