It’s been an intriguing few weeks at Bogbain with Bombskare and Charlotte Church having played the venue, however it is the story of “One Pig” that matches controversy with innovation. This is no “Babe”, but  “explores and questions the life, death, and consumption of the pig” through the sounds of a single pig’s life, from birth to plate. The result is described as “a delicate, beautiful, and occasional terrifying musical composition with a profundity rarely heard in electronic music.”

The live version of the critically acclaimed album, “One Pig”, debuted at the Royal Opera House, London in 2011 and has since toured throughout the world including Tokyo, Paris and Berlin.The live performance includes a chef cooking onstage brings the sound and smell of cooking pig, and a brand new custom instrument – the “Sty Harp”, built and performed by Edinburgh-based artist Yann Seznec. This representation of the pig’s home is used to trigger and control elements of music, forming an integral part of the 5 piece band.

A lifelong passion for music matched with a geeky fascination for social media and websites resulted in the creation of Inverness Gigs back in 2010. The aim of the site is to help promote, support and generally raise awareness of the local music scene.In fairness fifteen years of being a psychiatric nurse never prepared me for the experiences that we have had over the last few years and the evolution of Inverness Gigs has certainly been a steep learning curve.I currently write (less and less), edit and co-ordinate most of the Inverness Gigs activities.Occasionally seen on Twitter, and  LinkedIn, if you want get in touch you can contact me direct at chris@igi.gs
