'Staffa' is a new collaborative work depicting visions of Staffa, the uninhabited Hebridean island.
Created by BAFTA and Grierson award-winning filmmaker Gerry Fox and acclaimed composer Ned Bigham, and commissioned by Creative Scotland, the piece pays homage to Felix Mendelssohn's famous 1829 visit to the haunting Fingal's Cave on Staffa.
'Staffa' explores the unique hexagonal, basalt column formations of the interior of the cave and its surroundings in three simultaneously contrasting weather conditions, sunny, rainy and stormy.
The work is presented as an installation, with three large screens and music recorded by the Royal Scottish National Orchestra.
There is a live performance at the Usher Hall on 27 August, with music performed by the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra.
Runs from 17 August to 27 August, 10.00 until 18.00 every day.
