Dusk – A Wave of Words across the UK: Aberdeen

Our latest partner is:

Intuitive Music Aberdeen

(IMA) is an ensemble specialising in music created by the performers in response to text or graphic scores or unconventional notations. Its current members are Haworth Hodgkinson, Colin Edwards and Mandy Macdonald.

All three of us are active, published writers and musicians in a variety of musical genres.

Haworth‘s poetry and music are largely concerned with the changing seasons in the landscape of the North of Scotland, and the lives of the people who populate this landscape. His music can be heard on his own High Moss label; see in particular the Dundee Ambient series, two parts of which are inspired by the winter solstice. — Haworth ran the Wordfringe / New Words Festival in Aberdeen from 2006 to 2014.

Colin has a background in traditional music and song and long experience performing on the UK folk club circuit and in composing and arranging. He is active in community media development, running the production and technical aspects of the SHMU Wednesday Session, a live broadcast folk music show available to listeners worldwide via internet.

Mandy is a mostly classical singer of long experience and a member of three choirs in Aberdeen and one in London, and a harpsichordist. Her poetry is recorded at https://soundcloud.com/user-700481362/grimes-graves-mandy-macdonald-haworth-hodgkinson and https://soundcloud.com/haworthhodgkinson/emerald-earrings/s-jmTvO
