Blair Coron is a musician and composer residing in Glasgow, Scotland, blending the borders between contemporary classical music, ambience, flourishes of electronics, folk and poetry and with the aid of a string ensemble his primary intention is to create enchanting atmospheres that sets course for introspection.
When he is not performing with the band, he regularly collaborates and composes for those in the other arts with a keen interest in how the arts can be translated between one another. Currently he is scoring the soundtrack to a play by Andrew Edwards (winner of the Roxy Theatre award), which will be performed throughout the whole of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Crafting a concept album is an incredibly difficult task. Tying together a cohesive narrative across a record’s worth of songs isn’t just daunting, it’s an endeavour that even some of the industry’s finest have failed to do memorably. This task, however, becomes notably more difficult when you’re dealing in the abstract via instrumental soundscapes. That is what Chronotope Project, the moniker of composer Jeffrey Ericson Allen, attempts to do with his latest project, ‘Ovum.’
NAAL is an eclectic music project led by Chicago composer Dave Mantel. This talented musician has a true passion for great melodies and haunting musical textures. His blend of ambient, shoegaze and experimental drone music feels personal and unique, echoing the work of artists such as Slowdive, Boards of Canada or Sigur Ros, just to mention a few.
