This is a year-long project that began with ATLAS working with London-based Artangel, to bring a work by internationally acclaimed artist Bethan Huws to Skye. Singing for the Sea, a film-work made in 1993, documents a group of eight female Bulgarian singers known collectively as the Bistritsa Babi performing traditional songs on Sugar Sands, Northumberland, on the coast of the North Sea.
Eilean Fuinn is an ATLAS Arts commission by Richard Skelton. Installed in the Scorrybreac boathouse, Portree, this evolving sound work comprises four discrete channels of sound, each repeating over long durations (between one and two hours) but at variance with one another. It will therefore subtly change over the course of its installation.
