365: Stories and Music

Come along to a major new collection of Scottish contemporary literature and music in one interactive sound-art installation at Linlithgow Palace in October!

365: Stories and Music

About 365: Stories and Music

In 2013, Scottish poet and novelist James Robertson wrote a short story every day of the year – each story was 365 words, no more, no less.

Scottish fiddler and composer Aidan O’Rourke (of Lau) then matched the challenge. He wrote a new tune every day for a year in response to James's stories.

This sound-art installation shares that work, allowing visitors to the story or tune of any chosen day - or both together.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for 365: Stories and Music are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
