Sonic Bothy is an inclusive, experimental and new music organisation that explores, composes and performs experimental and contemporary music. Sonic Bothy has been providing opportunities of all levels for learning, physically disabled and neurodiverse people to create experimental and new music since 2012.
Sonic Bothy is delighted to be bringing Open Session Series sessions to Crieff in May and June. This light-hearted community project is open to the public with a learning disability or neurodiversity, and will accessibly experiment with sound and music with found objects, improvisation and instruments with an experienced and dedicated team of musicians. Previous musical experience is not necessary, and participants with multiple conditions are welcome.
This project is a partnership between Sonic Bothy, Strathearn Arts and Remake Scotland.
If you or someone you support would like to attend, please contact Sonic Bothy for more details on Katrina@sonicbothy.co.uk or call: Riah on 07916 057504 on weekdays.
Sonic Bothy has been supporting disabled musicians to make contributions to sound and music culture for a decade. Sonic Bothy Ensemble – an ensemble project involving musicians with and without disabilities, learning conditions and neurodiversities - has been breaking new ground in new and experimental music since 2012, creating original music that explores music accessibility. Sonic Bothy Ensemble’s performance and appearances have included some of Scotland and the Uk’s most internationally recognised music festivals, such as BBC Tectonics Online, Tusk Festival, Glasgow Improvisers Orchestra festival, Counterflows and Sound Festival. Sonic Bothy Ensemble’s recent pandemic work ‘Verbaaaaatim’ was featured on BBC Radio 3’s New Music Show in May 2021, and was shortlisted for a John Byrne Award earlier this year.
