A new experimental series of ‘in conversation’ style events, pairing leading musicians with writers, is being launched by the University of St Andrews. The series, called Soundings, will launch on 4 November with PJ Harvey appearing alongside Irish poet Paul Muldoon in an intimate event at The Byre Theatre.
The aim of the series – which will initially see three events taking place between November and April 2015 – is to pair together internationally-renowned figures from the worlds of music and literature that are ‘spiritually or creatively influenced by one another’.
Each event will include a short solo set by each performer, followed by an unscripted conversation between the two on their working process.
