How did they do that?

The East Neuk Festival specialises in images in the sand.

This one accompanied Memorial Ground by the American composer David Lang, premiered yesterday at Cambo Potato Barn by Theatre of Voices, Scottish Chamber Orchestra and singers from Fife choirs, conducted by Paul Hillier.



  • Robert Holmén says:

    Well done.

    “Anamorphic” imagery, crafted so that it appears normal when seen at an unusual angle, is the word for that, I believe.

  • Christina MacLeod says:

    “Far North festival”? Um, Fife is in east central Scotland.
    It’s like describing York as the “Far South”.
    Thank you for featuring this wonderful festival though.
