I created the sound for Highwire a new film by the artist Catherine Yass. A multi-screen film and video installation, High Wire was filmed at the Red Road housing scheme in North Glasgow when French high wire artist Didier Pasquette attempted to walk between three of the high rise tower blocks. The event turned out to be somewhat anti-climatic with high winds leading Pasquette to abandon his walk after several steps out onto the wire and, terrifyingly, retrace his path....
Originally shown at the Centre for Contemporary Arts in Glasgow it has since be exhibited at the German Gymnasium in London and at the Whitworth in Manchester.
