Platform is delighted to host Making Tracks this October for what will be the first public performance held inside our venue since February last year.

Making Tracks brings together eight exceptional young musicians (Making Tracks Fellows) from the UK and around the world for an annual residency and tour.

After incubating new collaborative works during a two-week residency at Cove Park on the west coast of Scotland, the Fellows go on tour, showcasing their own music and new collaborations at some of the country’s leading venues. They are Iona Fyfe (Scotland/UK), Simon Leleux (Belgium), Azin Zahedi (Iran/Germany), Robert Bisha (Albania / Italy), Thamires Tannous (Brazil/Austria), Liz Hanks (England/UK), Ahmet Ozan Baysal (Turkey/UK) and Brigitte Hart (Australia/UK).

Guided by the two central themes of musical roots and nature reverence, Making Tracks is also founded upon the idea that the collaborative creation and sharing of music is an ideal vehicle for crossing cultural divides. This special live performance offers audiences an opportunity to hear the product of this unique collaboration and the material created during the recent residency at Cove Park.

For more information about the project check out this trailer or visit the Making Tracks website.


Please note tickets for the performance can only be purchased online and there will be no walks up or tickets for sale at the venue. Online ticket sales will close at 5pm on Thu 28 Oct.
