Ailie Robertson, who was born in Edinburgh in 1983, is a multi-award winning composer, performer and creative curator whose work crosses the boundaries of traditional and contemporary music. Winner of the ‘Achievement in New Music’ prize at the inaugural New Music Scotland Awards, and a National Mod five times gold medallist, Ailie has received many commissions, awards and residences in UK Ireland and Canada. She is currently Composer-in-Residence for Sound Scotland and Glyndebourne Opera.
Ailie loves to incorporate the natural world of Scotland into her music. Exploring the interactions between folk, electronic and classical music, her project ‘The Living Mountain’ pays homage to the Cairngorms with field recordings and newly composed music that connect identity, memory and place. Harp, string quartet and electronics combine to create musical soundscapes that are emotive, exciting, haunting and soulful.
