Currents was premiered in October 2021 at SOUNDfestival in Aberdeen by the Any Enemy ensemble. The piece is based on the sounds of the Kelvin River in Glasgow (Scotland), which were originally recorded and then transcribed for this piece. The piece presents to the listener a sonification of a fleeting moment in time that was captured via field recording, which shows the river as it flows today. With the climate crisis becoming incredibly urgent, there might not be a time where we can sit by the River Kelvin and enjoy its sounds the way we can today. Currents is therefore also an homage to the environment as we know it and take for granted everyday.
