INTO THE ALTERED STATES is a year-long project celebrating voices across Scotland, exploring how vocal cultures and musical performance connect us to ourselves, to the community, and to place. Bringing together an intergenerational group of musicians alongside the voices of elderly individuals and vocal practitioners.

INTO THE ALTERED STATES intention is to trial new platforms for social exchange as we emerge from the shadow of the pandemic; to use film, performance, and digital technology to amplify voices marginalised by Covid-19 and age, and to create visually-striking film-works within a uniquely collaborative framework, whereby the process of making each moving-image work is meaningful and inclusive to the widest possible publics. Work is made in collaboration with those who have a strong connection to voice, music, and sound.
