In September 2014, Scottish Ensemble joined forces with internationally renowned visual artist Toby Paterson to present an ambitious cross-artform collaboration connecting 20th-century music and architecture with art.

This immersive experience combined specially curated sets of 20th-century music with a newly created environment built by Paterson, performed in – and created specifically for – the Anderston Centre, an important Glasgow Modernist landmark designed by Richard Seifert and completed in 1972.

This is a document of the stunning result.
