About This is Moth Death

This is Moth Death is a new sound work by Timothea Armour commissioned by Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop for The Beacon Tower. Taking the form of a radio drama set in a pub, the audience are eavesdropping on the conversation at a nearby table where a band is having a post-rehearsal pint. All of the band members are bats.

Performed by actors, the bats’ conversation will dramatise the ecology that surrounds The Beacon tower by finding parallels between their nocturnal life led in liminal urban spaces and the music, nightlife and accompanying subcultures that do the same; simultaneously thriving and constantly under threat from capital and redevelopment.

The Beacon Tower Commissions

This is the first of four new sound commissions for The Beacon Tower to run until April 2022. It is one strand of a wider programme of public commissions designed to provide audiences with an unexpected and thought provoking encounter with art as they go about their daily lives.
