Remix Album Launch
‘Score Tae The Toor’ Book and CD Launch
Simon Kirby, Tommy Perman and Rob St John
Saturday 21 May
2pm – 4pm
Artist talk at 3pm.
Come and join Simon, Tommy and Rob to mark the launch of their new book and CD ‘Score Tae The Toor’ inspired by the Concrete Antenna sound installation which was commissioned by Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop.
The trio gave a set of musicians (including King Creosote, WOLF and Mark Lyken) access to their sound archive, tower instruments and compositions, and asked them to reimagine the sited material created for the installation. Seven writers including Hanna Tuulikki, Richard Williams and Nicola Meighan were asked to write pieces inspired by the tower and the installation, with pieces covering architecture, memory, archives, urban ecology and public art.
Named after a phrase used by fishermen in the Firth of Forth using tall buildings on the Edinburgh skyline to orientate their sailing, ‘Score Tae the Toor’ is a limited edition publication published by Random Spectacular, printed using a variety of techniques including risography, lithography, letterpress and computer controlled pen and knife plotters. The event will include a discussion with the artists, screenings of short films and the opportunity to purchase ‘Score Tae The Toor’.
