Fragile Pitches is a project of Michael and Colin Potter (Nurse With Wound, Monos, Fovea Hex)
The work, a richly reverberant sonic experience designed to have maximum impact in cavernous cathedral interiors, was originally commissioned in 2009 by Unique Events to be performed in St Giles Cathedral, Edinburgh, Scotland, as part of the city’s formal New Year celebrations.
Prior to the St Giles Cathedral performance, Michael Begg performed sections from the work at St Mary’s Collegiate Church in Haddington, Scotland.
The work was subsequently commissioned to be performed in Legnica, Poland in 2010. In this case the setting was not a church, but a 19th century theatre space.
