Programme Notes

The M8 is the motorway that runs between Edinburgh and Glasgow - as motorways go it's pretty good, it has 4 or 5 great bits of public art including grass pyramids, a giant foghorn and a huge wire horse. These five miniatures are short distinct homages to journeys I made with my friend Sarah when I was 17 or 18 and we seemed to spend a disproportionate amount of our spare time bombing up and down the M8 in the middle of the night to and from various ill-advised indie gigs.
