Today we kicked off the first Counterflows Residency. Visual artist Janie Nicoll and Composer / performer Annette Krebs are working together for 8 days in the CCA Creative Lab. Bringing different artforms together and also different cultures – Janie is based in Glasgow and Annette in Berlin – they’ll be using their time to explore processes, techniques and methods.

This residency is all about process. We’re interested in how the conversation develops, what it is – and isn’t – possible to create in an intense, short burst of time. We’re none of us sure what we’ll share with you next Saturday. This is the beginning of an adventure, a journey: one without a pre-determined final destination.

Here’s a short conversation with producer Suzy Glass during which Janie and Annette talk about their work and how they’re approaching the next few days.
