About Stuart Macpherson
Stuart is a musician, composer and sonic artist based in rural Galloway.
His work has a strong focus on place and environment and how we are connected to it, in particular the remote and rural and its relevance on a bigger stage.
He has had works performed by a wide variety of music ensembles including Red Note, Scottish Ensemble and McFall’s Chamber and has been twice shortlisted for the Martyn Bennett Prize for Composition.
He has worked on cross-disciplinary projects through National Theatre of Scotland, Creative Mackintosh Festival, Spotted Stripes Circus with recent work diversifying into immersive sound installation and collaborative projects with performances as part of Galloway’s darks skies event for experimental works, Sanctuary, and Glasgow’s Cryptic Nights.
He has a desire to create new music that raises compelling questions about wider environmental ideas, whilst challenging audience perceptions.
