Craig Armstrong & Dalziel+Scullion

On Tuesday 10th October, I headed on up from Birmingham to Glasgow to see the ‘Once’ exhibition at the recently reopened Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum.

'Once' is a unique collaboration between artists Dalziel + Scullion and composer Craig Armstrong. The video installation piece was specially commissioned to celebrate the reopening of Kelvingrove. The work consists of over 200 video portraits shot in Glasgow, set to music composed by Craig and then remixed by AGF.

Craig's piece of music entitled 'Memory Takes My Hand' is comprised of 12 movements, with a running time of around 35 minutes. The music has some glorious cinematic qualities, combined with some quite ethereal moments.
