EPISODE DESCRIPTION
Composer Thomas Butler discusses his composition, Elbow Room, performed this week by the Red Note Ensemble, which tells the story of how contemporary Glasgow was built. It includes fragments of films made in the 1949 and 1971 that looked forward to the future of Glasgow and Thomas's piece reflects on the optimism that was present in the schemes and perhaps some of the mistakes that were made. He wanted to capture some of the excitement that the planners had to make a better life for everybody - that it could be an urban Utopia, even though they failed. Featuring music recorded at the performance at Summerhall with the Red Note Ensemble. http://www.rednoteensemble.com/ Check out Thomas's website: http://www.thomas-butler.co.uk Presented by Ryan Van Winkle @rvwable and produced by Colin Fraser @kailworm of Culture Laser Productions http://www.culturelaser.com @culturelaser
