Sing the Gloaming is a collaboration between Professor Simon Kirby and artist/musicians Tommy Perman and Rob St. John, taking its inspiration from Simon’s research in the University of Edinburgh’s Centre for Language Evolution.
It’s a project on light, language and landscape, created using experimental art and music, featuring some of Scotland’s finest vocalists: Kenny Anderson, Nerea Bello, Aidan Moffat, Emily Scott, Su Shaw, Hanna Tuulikki and Andrew Wasylyk.
A short documentary about the project is available to watch for the very first time below.
Sing the Gloaming will be released as a 10” vinyl and print package in June 2020 on Blackford Hill, a new label founded by Random Spectacular’s Simon Lewin. More information is available here.
