The creation of Air falbh leis na h-eòin: Hanna on tumblr

Listen here to an extract from Hanna’s diary: Meeting Mary http://www.capefarewell.com/seachange/wp-content/uploads/canna-diary-extract-111.mp3New research suggests birds, like humans, are ‘moved’ by song: read here 23 September 2012 – Air falbh leis na h-eòin/Away with the Birds performed in St Edward’s Chapel, Sanday It was quite an amazing piece of music, full of unexpected twists and turns: wild bird calling, mixed with beautiful harmonies, wee touches of humour and a sense of the history of the land and its people. The remoteness of the location, with a bumpy boat ride and winding walk round the bay to such an intriguing building all added to the charm and gave it almost a feeling of a pilgrimage It was a lovely day out, and very exciting glimpse into what looks like being an exceptional project. (Eva Schonveld, Isle of Eigg) Thanks for lovely day out. Great boat trip; wonderful to see Canna. Music unusual, interesting and very, very good. Wonderful choice of venue with incredible acoustics. (Sue Hollands, Neil and Struan Robertson, Isle of Eigg) It was a great experience to be able to hop onto another island in the Small Isles (and one that is hard to visit for us since the ferry timetable does not allow for day trips to Canna from Eigg) to hear such an amazing piece of vocal music after enjoying the Canna landscape in that superb autumn light. It was truly moving to hear how the nature and wildlife as well as the Gaelic culture of our Hebridean islands could have inspired such a beautiful and original work. It was also great to have succeeded in getting St Edward’s Chapel opened to the public for the performance, as it is such great shame to have had it mothballed since its inauguration, which now seems light years ago. The performance showed the potential of that space as a concert venue and I do hope that NTS on Canna will realise how much they could use this space for the enjoyment of the visiting public. Keep up the good work, and let us know how the show develops! We need more art pieces inspired by our island environment. (Camille Dressler, Isle of Eigg) Despite following the project quite carefully, I wasn’t really sure what to expect. I wasn’t really sure whether the music would be enjoyed or resonate with my fellow travellers. So with nervous anticipation I made my way to Canna. It could not have been a more inspiring day. The might of the sea and landscape. The hold of the island on the eye, the ear, the heart. And beautiful music, more than music; swooping and swirling sounds in and round my head and imagination, just like the seabirds outside as we walked back to the boat. Karen closed her eyes and was back with her daughter on the cliffs of Shetland. I heard Gaelic words and refrains I’d forgotten existed. As I looked around the beautiful haunted St Edwards I saw smiles, calm contemplation, excitement and wonder. My worries that a contemporary composition comprised of bird song and Gaelic would be somehow distant and alien to me and my fellow islanders ears, vanished. I wanted to hear it again as soon as it had finished. Thank you (Lucy Conway, Isle of Eigg) Geoff Sample, Mary Smith on Canna
