Sound of Yell + Sensory Illusions + Aidan Moffat DJ

Sat 15 February 2020

Imagine the universe of Sound of Yell as an artist’s studio or a theatre props store, where instead of paints and brushes and jumbled boxes there are instruments and sounds and motifs mingled together, some to melodious effect, others fusing to conjure an eerie dissonance.

Overseeing this Aladdin’s cave of sound and song is Stevie Jones, whose balance of the deliberate and the spontaneous has become a signature developed through countless collaborations – including Bill Wells and Aidan Moffat, Alasdair Roberts, Emma Pollock and Arab Strap – the groundbreaking quartet El Hombre Trajeado (alongside guitarist RM Hubbert) and stints composing music and sound design for Scotland’s leading theatre companies.

An acoustic compendium of fingerstyle guitar, idiosyncratic strings and woodwind and free-spirited percussion, his latest album Leapling is a humble yet masterful collection of instrumentals and songs written and produced by a prolific musician, composer and producer, and a key figure in the underground Glasgow music scene for more than two decades.
