Ballantyne Movement Two: The Edge Of The Sea is the first single from Craig Armstrong and Calum Martin’s new album of the same title. Featuring Gaelic psalm singing with a congregation from the Outer Hebridean Isles of Lewis and Harris uniquely performed and recorded with the Scottish Ensemble.
The Edge Of The Sea calls softly to mind both the ever-changing island landscape and the emotive history of the ancient knowledge of Gaelic psalm singing.
The film, (available to view on Craig Armstrong’s youtube channel in wide screen format), has been created by the artists Dalziel and Scullion and shows the Flannan islands off the west coast of Scotland which were shot from the cliffs at Aird Uig of Lewis.
The Edge Of The Sea album is being released by Modern Recordings (BMG Germany) later in August.
