Neil Davidson, Aileen Campbell & Robin Hayward

Confusing the realms between rehearsal and performance, public and private space, Aileen and Neil will restage aspects of their bell tower visit at the INSTAL CLUB joined by Robin Hayward on tuba.

Glasgow Improvisers Aileen and Neil live roughly equal distances from the Glasgow University bell tower, the tolling of whose bell can be heard all over the west end of Glasgow. It is a territorial sound which marks out space in that part of the city and regulates (supposedly) student behaviour, attending classes and so on. The bell is an evocative sound and Aileen & Neil want to get inside the structure of the sound in its environment rather than imitate it or simulate it.
