London Launch of Master Rock: Maria Fusco in conversation with Joanna Walsh

    Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesOther event


    Master Rock tells the story of the construction of Cruachan Power Station, a state of the art hydroelectric power station deep within Ben Cruachan, one of the highest peaks in Western Scotland. Fusing the documentary and the lyric, three distinct voices bring this story together, through the words and imagined projections of John Mulholland, one of the few surviving explosives experts – known as tunnel tigers – who blasted their way through the granite rock to create an immense chamber for the power station; Elizabeth Falconer, the amateur artist who made a vast mythological, marquetry mural inside the turbine hall; and the voice of the ancient granite itself.
