Background Noise

The result of our collaboration with artist Emmie McLuskey, Channels is a multidisciplinary programme exploring the Union Canal through the work of four artist based in Scotland – Hannan Jones, Janice Parker, Maeve Redmond, and Amanda Thomson.

Background Noise, a collaborative project which unites these commissions, is a sound project that brings together people interested in the Union Canal from across different disciplines. The work will be presented as a live radio station broadcasting every Saturday throughout August at 6pm. Each week, the artists, invited collaborators, and McLuskey, will come together to respond to Channels through sound, interview, spoken word, and music.

All broadcasts will be available for playback shortly after the broadcast. For more details, visit
