For this innovative cross art-form project The National Youth Orchestras of Scotland’s contemporary chamber ensemble, NYOS Futures, collaborates with artists working in a variety of media to produce a truly unique, live audiovisual experience. NYOS Futures will perform stunning new works composed in response to a collection of immersive visual arts projects, combining elements of film, photography, animation, electronic surround-sound design, story telling and live performance. This vibrant performance event explores notions of vanishing boundaries: either real or imagined; past or present; local or global.
ABOUT GLASGOW MUSIC AND FILM FESTIVAL //
Now in its third year, the Glasgow Music and Film Festival is lovingly co-curated by film buffs and music geeks at the Glasgow Film Theatre and the Arches. A series of specially commissioned, one-off events combining audio and visuals, the results range from the entertaining, to the inspirational, to the downright weird.
This show is 14+ (Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult aged 18+)
No forthcoming events
Legendary international acts, cult festivals and the most exciting new bands collide at one of the city’s most eclectic live venues.
It’s perhaps natural that, as one of the nation’s most unusual live music venues, our programme spans rock, pop, indie, electronica, soul, jazz, country, metal, folk, and the many sub-genres inbetween. The unique atmosphere and space of the building means it’s often used for anything from intimate acoustic gigs to stage-diving, sweaty rammies and slick, spectacular international concerts.
Supporting the best examples of the known and the not-so-known, the Arches stage is host to everything from the latest stars of leftfield pop, such as Grimes and Chvrches, to alternative indie rock acts such as Peace and Yeasayer, prog and rock heroes such as The Fall, Swans and Dinosaur Jnr, and cutting edge electronic talent, from Rustie to James Blake.
We also regularly plays host to international legends – from Martha Reeves to Ben E. King to Jane Birkin – and provide the perfect multi-room setting for various festivals, from Celtic Connections to the Glasgow Jazz Festival. In 2012, the hallowed arches played hosted to the UK-wide Africa Express tour, featuring Damon Albarn, Baaba Maal and a trainload of world music stars, and in 2013, the building was transformed into a sonic Cineplex for our own co-curated cult event the Glasgow Music and Film Festival, featuring live film scores and AV sets from Jeff Mills, Dieter Moebius and Raime.
“A classical gig in the vaults of Scotland’s dance mecca might sound an odd prospect, but the Arches proved the perfect setting”
