Have a dedication made for you from the plinth top!
In the small hours of Sunday 13th September, Ros Gasson, the Scots Music Group’s Development Worker, will be on the ‘One and Other’ plinth in Trafalgar Square with her fiddle. ‘One & Other’ is a live artwork by sculptor Antony Gormley. 2,400 participants representing every region of the UK each spend an hour on the 4th plinth in Trafalgar Square. The project will run for 100 days and nights.
‘One and Other’ are recording everyone who is on the plinth – their recordings are streamed live on their website, 24 hours a day. They’ll be keeping their recordings on their website to create a permanent archive. They also plan to use them to make films, television programmes and books, and to use them for advertising and publicity.
Would you like to be a part of this arts project, and have a set of tunes dedicated to someone from the plinth top? Ros is inviting SMG members to pledge a donation to SMG in return for a mention during her hour on the plinth.
