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.
