Abstract

Stolen Voices Aberdeen used a research methodology based on listening practices to create an original piece of live performance. Collins and Linsley used their research methodology to work with Aberdeen-based composer Pete Stollery to create a new musical composition. The composition was nominated for the Scottish Music Awards 2018. Stolen Voices Aberdeen was commissioned by Silver City Stories (a consortium between Visit Aberdeenshire, Aberdeen City Council and the University of Aberdeen). The work has been funded by Arts Council England and has been supported by Aberdeen Performing Arts, Sound & Music, the Live Art Development Agency, Aldeburgh Music, SPILL Festival and Arts Bournemouth.Circulation of Stolen Voices outputs has been designed to respond to one of the central research questions of the project: how can eavesdropping be used as a method for dissemination that takes into account and complicates notions of the ‘local’, ‘national/international’, ‘art audiences’ and ‘community engagement’? The range of outputs itself is a response to this question. The two site-specific (Seaham and Aberdeen) performance works were designed with and for community members, with materials gathered through a process of formal public workshops, meetings, interviews, archival research and more informal modes of hanging out and listening in.
