The Hebrides Suite





What is landscape but a map of human activity past and present? 

The exhibition includes a new work, 'Sandy Jaffas' made in collaboration with Comann Eachdraidh Ubhist a Deas (South Uist Historical Society) at Kildonan Museum; Comann Eachdraidh Ubhist a Tuath (North Uist Historical Society) at Taigh Chearsabagh and pupils and staff from Sgiol Lionacleit.

The Hebrides Suite

This work is a part of The Hebrides Suite a sound art research project by Cathy Lane, initiated in 2008. The project builds on her repeated visits to the Outer Hebrides over the previous three decades and is driven by the desire to investigate how we can hear the sonic traces of past lives and past events on the present. The Hebrides Suite now consists of eight separate sound compositions which combine field recordings, archive material and spoken word; a CD release and various exhibitions and concert performances and publications.
