Sonic Bothy is an award-winning Inclusive ensemble bringing together musicians with an additional learning need and Glasgow-based musicians to explore, compose and perform contemporary music. It was formed by musician and director, Claire Docherty, who has more than 10 years experience of delivering and developing participatory arts projects, and is comprised of an innovative and experienced team of 9 mixed-ability, creative musicians, some of whom are musicians/educators in Scotland's new music scene.

During the months of October and November Sonic Bothy has been invited by AC Projects to undertake an exciting and dynamic creative residency at CCA, Glasgow, called 'Space + Listening + Democracy'.  This exciting opportunity will allow the musicians time to develop new music, whilst exploring the ideas behind the residency's themes.

Sonic Bothy will benefit from the opportunity to collaborate with artists Kirsty Stansfield and The One Ensemble, and in addition will deliver open learning sessions that will benefit around 30 other interested musicians with a disability. A sharing event will take place at the end of the residency to discuss our work, the outcome of which will in turn shape and inform future work.

To date, the work of Sonic Bothy has been funded with the aid of two funding awards from Creative Scotland but as yet, we have been unable to secure funding for this residency, which is why we need your help.

Sonic bothy is a truly unusual thing - an artist and participant-led new music ensemble with a fierce commitment to democracy, collaboration and creating original music embedded in Scotland's new and experimental music landscapes. 

We hope that you can help us to ensure that we are able to realise this opportunity to its fullest potential.

Risks and challenges

Until we reach our full funding amount we can't contract some artists that we are very keen to collaborate with, that we feel will be greatly beneficial to our development. The sooner we are able to reach our target the sooner these arrangements can take place; our members bring a range of experience that will ensure the smooth running of the project from this point on.
