Reviews of Peter MacCalman’s work:-

At just 20 minutes long, Counterpoise was one of those quintessential Arches Live! delights; sonorously atmospheric live music composed for string quartet by Peter MacCalman, an installation of titled metal railings, angled planks and various light sources (Danny Holcroft) and three female dancers working down the length of a vast arch, placing sculptural movements – balances, yogic stances, stretches – in considered juxtapositions against inanimate objects. A simple idea, maybe, but caringly thought through so all the elements came together effectively, proving memorable for all the right reasons – The Herald

The melodies are straight out of a horror film (think frantic), they build the sense of urgency and danger –

New music is set to be released in the autumn of 2019.
