Away with the Birds

Explore the inspiration behind a one-off piece of music - by stepping inside the score.

Hanna Tuulikki’s Guth an Eòin (Voice of the Bird), is a musical piece for ten female singers, inspired by the tradition of imitating birdsong in Gaelic music.

This digital version gives you the chance to get closer to the music as you create your own journey around Tuulikki's hand-drawn musical score and explore exclusive drawings, film footage, and sections from a new studio recording.

Guth an Eòin was first performed on the Isle of Canna as part of the Glasgow 2014 Cultural Programme and was supported by Creative Scotland.
