Incredible Distance the Scottish Chamber Orechestra’s creative project for adults in Wester Hailes, has released a set of original songs written by local people and musicians from the SCO and in partnership with Edinburgh College.
The project is part of the SCO’s Wester Hailes Residency and delivered in partnership with Edinburgh College and WHALE Arts.

The project is open to all adults, irrespective of musical experience, and we work with local GPs and community link workers to welcome and support participants who are referred via social prescribing.
In 2018, participants created an original audio-visual installation which explores the sonic and visual identity of the Edinburgh suburb, capturing snapshots of daily life through the collection of found sound, imagery, film and original musical composition. The work was installed at the Royal Scottish Academy, the Fruitmarket Gallery and WHALE Arts, Edinburgh.
