HECTOR MACINNES sound artist | musician | producer

I am Hector MacInnes, I'm a sound artist, a musician and a producer from the Isle of Skye on the west coast of Scotland. I work with installation, text, composition, spoken word, speculative design and sonic fiction, often in collaboration with other artists and communities.

In the last few years I have presented collaborative and solo work at Sound Festival in Aberdeen, Edinburgh's Hogmanay, An Lanntair Arts Centre, Taigh Chearsabhagh, the Made In Scotland Showcase at the Edinburgh Fringe, the National Library of Scotland Online and the EFDSS. I have conducted residencies with the Bothy Project and Creative Carbon Scotland.

As a multi-instrumentalist I have recorded and performed with a wide range of musicians including Mylo, Mairearad Green, Jason Singh and Sophie Stephenson, and I am a proud member of The Dead Man's Waltz, Oat Perigord and Havoc. I have produced, recorded and mixed artists including David Littler, Ingrid Henderson and Iain MacFarlane, Beware of Trains and DĂ imh.

In 2021 I am working on two projects - the first is the curation of a group exhibition exploring the future of the souvenir and its role in shaping our memories and experiences of place, the second is an engagement with the testimony of parents and carers on low incomes about their experiences during the pandemic, working alongside other researchers and artists with Covid Realities.
