Noisy Nights is fun, free and your chance to listen to (and compose for!) some of the best musicians in Scotland. Noisy Nights is a place to meet music-lovers, curious minds, musicians, composers and artists in an informal space where you can hear some of the best examples of brand new music while having a beer. All sorts of music are welcomed here – as are all sorts of listeners.
The instruments for Monday’s Noisy Night will be 3 ‘cellos, played by Robert Irvine, Eilidh Martin and Sonia Cromarty – and new music by James Bryce, Jesse Raccio, Elisabeth Cowe, Atzi Muramatsu, Sandy Stanage, Michael Szpakowski, Gareth Brady, Patrick Smyth, Ronnie McNiven and Amble Skuse and the winner of the 10 Minute Composing Challenge will be heard for the first time.
What is the 10 Minute Composing Challenge? It’s your chance to write an “instant piece” and get it played on the night. During the interval we will hand out manuscript paper for you to write your own piece in 10 minutes – and at the end of the interval we’ll select the one we think is best and perform it there and then. Instant music!
Also … bring your camera phones and video cameras. Video-maker Laurie Irvine will be recording the night for posterity, and feel free to come and take your own footage so we can add it to our “best of Noisy Nights 12” compilation.
