The Greatest Story Ever Told by Aidan Moffat & Bill Wells

February 25: Aidan Moffat & Bill Wells, The Arches, Glasgow (tickets)

Aidan Moffat is also collaborating with FOUND at Edinburgh’s Inspace on a project called #unravel, described as “a reactive sound installation in which visitors can unravel the truth about a narrator’s life by playing records from his collection”.  There are free public events relating to the work every week until February 19. #unravel will then go on display at SWG3 for the Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art from April 20 to May 7.
