One No Many Yeses

  • Amble Skuse University of Plymouth


The piece One No Many Yeses was inspired by the 2014 Scottish Independence Referendum, and produced in collaboration with National Collective. In this contribution, the author discusses the working of the piece, situating herself as a pro-independence campaigner willing to mark this crucial moment in history, and as a disabled artist exploring the analogies between territorial and individual self-determination. The piece explores how a composer can give voice to non-composers and use real audio to create a representation of the conversations found online and in the real world
