Incredible Distance is a collaborative arts project for adults which forms part of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra’s three-year Wester Hailes residency.
An open invitation was made to adults living locally and, over six weeks of sessions at WHALE Arts working in collaboration with composer Suzanne Parry and workshop leader Emma Smith, participants created an original audio-visual installation which explores the sonic and visual identity of Wester Hailes, capturing snapshots of daily life through the collection of found sound, imagery, film and original musical composition.
Woven into an intricate tapestry of sound and imagery by composer Suzanne Parry and artist Ewan John, the result is part tone poem, part dreamscape, which loosely reflects 24 hours in the life of Wester Hailes.
