Developed by Glasgow-based curatorial project Cento, this site-specific performance by composer and sound artist Kali Malone takes place in Glasgow's 12th century cathedral. Kali will play selected compositions from her acclaimed albums All Life Long, 2024 and The Sacrificial Code, 2019, adapted for the cathedral’s organ, built by Henry Willis in 1879. The performance includes additional accompaniment by musician Stephen O'Malley on several four-handed organ pieces.

Kali composes with clarity and focus, utilising evolving harmonic cycles to draw out latent emotional resonances, generating spaces for contemplation. Her experimental reinterpretations of centuries-old polyphonic compositional methods and historical tuning systems become portals to new ways of perceiving sound and time. Kali’s work animates the body of the church and creates a moment of reflection on the city’s sonic, architectural, and social history.
