Dewar's World of Whisky

Saturday 2nd November 12.30pm

#UNRAVEL @ Dewar’s World of Whisky
#UNRAVEL is a collection of devices making up a gallery-based, reactive sound installation, through which the audience will attempt to unravel the truth about The Narrator’s life by playing records from his collection. When we tell the story of a memory, how much of it is true and how much is shaped by who we are talking to? Once we've told the story many times, how do we even know what is true any more - what is constructed and what actually happened?
#UNRAVEL is the work of Edinburgh based arts collective / experimental pop band FOUND and Glasgow-based author and musician, Aidan Moffat best known as one half of the band Arab Strap.
To welcome #UNRAVEL to Dewar’s Home in the Highlands, join Simon Kirby and Ziggy Campbell at Dewar’s WOW at 12.30pm on Saturday 2nd November to discover more about this totally unique project. Oh and of course we will be sharing a dram or two of the #UNRAVEL single cask bottling - A tasty Aberfeldy Single Malt specially selected for you to savour while listening!
