Dusk Partners- Aberdeen

Our most northerly partners (though I was talking to someone yesterday at the Poetry Book Fair about Fairisle as a possibility!) are Intuitive Music Aberdeen, who have found us a lovely bookshop in Ellon for a venue.

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 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.

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. Listen to her poetry.
