  1. Beautiful stuff Mr. Menzies! At times it reminds me of Steve Reich a his best. Where can I buy it in CD format, or is it download only?

      1. Thanks for the reply, album downloading as I type. Do you think you will ever perform the soundtrack live alongside a screening of the film again? Would love to experience that….

        1. Thanks for buying it. It is 90% going to be performed again this summer, but only in Shetland I’m afraid……still working out the details. I will continue to try and have it performed though…..

    1. Some beautiful venues there for sure…just been looking at the website. It is always a matter of funds, as each performance costs a lot to put on…..but I will be considering the venues for other projects too as they look excellent…..
