AT the end of this month the Scottish Sculpture Workshop presents Edge Effects, a programme of workshops, walks, film and performance that explores the complex co-dependencies between ecological, social, economic, and political phenomena. Based at the CCA in Glasgow but also to be found at the Arlington Baths and Govan's Pearce Institute, the programme includes two musical performances produced in collaboration with Counterflows.

On the evening of Thursday July 27 composer and performer Aine O'Dwyer will create a new performance at the CCA, based on a series of drawings she has made of mythical creatures. Saturday July 29 sees the Scottish debut at the same venue of feminist party punk trio Charismatic Megafauna, who will bring costume, projection and percussion to their interpretation of the Xenofeminist Manifesto. Both concerts begin at 7.30pm.

THE NYOS Jazz Orchestra joins in the #jazz100 celebration of jazz’s centenary with a summer tour in July featuring music with the theme of A Road Trip Across America.
