FOUND & Aidan Moffat win Vital Sparks Award


We are extremely happy to announce that we’ve been successful in our application for a Creative Scotland Vital Sparks Award. We’re not going to reveal too much about the project yet but over the next year or so FOUND will be collaborating with Aidan Moffat to create a major new artwork that will be unveiled in 2012.

Here’s the official spiel from the Creative Scotland press release (and we’ll tell you more soon):

“Edinburgh-based arts collective / experimental pop band, FOUND have joined forces with Glasgow-based singer-songwriter, Aidan Moffat, and Professor Simon Kirby from the University of Edinburgh’s Language Evolution and Computation Research Unit to develop, Unravel, a new form of dynamic non-linear storytelling that reacts to audiences and context.”

Ziggy Campbell said: “The Vital Spark award is rare in that, not only has it encouraged FOUND to seek out a brand new collaborator, it is also substantial enough to allow us the time and space necessary to realise our most ambitious idea to date.

I’m looking forward to the chance to create a completely new and unique work with Aidan Moffat.”
