What's special about live music?
Why do we gather together to listen to it?
What part does the audience play in a live performance?
Why not…just stay at home and stick a recording on?
During Common Sound Scottish Ensemble will be exploring these questions through live performance and conversation, guided by BBC 6 Music DJ and Psychotherapist Nemone.
Alongside thought-provoking words from Nemone, they'll be playing short sets that will range from gut-wrenchingly beautiful Bach through to hypnotic Steve Reich, as well as music by Radiohead and Caroline Shaw.
As we gather again for live performance this is a timely and powerful reminder of what it means to gather on Common Sound.
