MUSIC NOTE BY NICK POWELL Alasdair Gray wrote Lanark over nearly 30 years – a period of time in which he had exclusive access to one of the most extraordinary and eclectic imaginations of our time. In order to write suitable music (in considerably less time) for our version, I needed to enlist the collaboration of some extraordinary and eclectic musicians. Thanks to them for their diverse talents and letting me put together, in some moments, unlikely supergroups. Follow the lines to uncover the connections...
