The Counterflows residency series is a really important aspect of the festival’s commitment to exploring the processes embedded in music making. The creative residency brings together artists for whom working collaboratively lies at the heart of their practice. Counterflows and the Goethe-Institut in Glasgow have partnered again to enable an international guest to come to Scotland for a weeklong collaborative residency. This year we’ve invited Berlin-based experimental musician and composer Andrea Neumann to work with the musician and sound artist Adam Campbell from Glasgow. Andrea will also present a solo work at the last day of the festival.
The event at CCA on the Saturday provides a space for both artists to share their ideas, impressions, probably music and also obstacles they’ve encountered during the residency. It’s an invitation for anyone keen to learn about their joint creative work process – and a prelude to the presentation of Andrea’s solo work at Glad Café on Sunday.
