In the Kirk of St Nicholas we celebrate Aberdeen’s international artistic connections – French masters of light installations Groupe LAPS will unveil an all new commission for Aberdeen, Les Araignées – Giant Light Spiders taking over the graveyard in tribute to Robert Bruce, while Tobias Daemgen’s art collective RaumZeitPiraten will bring their “ElektroMistel” to the trees a nod to the Gaelic myth of the all healing plant.

Inside the Kirk Drum Aisle Felix Thorn will install one of his marvellous machines, an automated percussion instrument, which will play an entirely new work based on traditional Aberdonian folk songs composed for the festival, while Greek Media artist YiannisKranidiotis’ “Pentatono”, a kinetic harmonic oscillator, pendulums of light and sound.
