Glasgow is buzzing with lots of arts events for the Glasgow International Festival.

Today I walked down Jamaica Street to the river Clyde. The bridge there is paying host to a sound installation by Susan Philipsz. There is nothing to advertise its existence, so I wasn't sure I'd got the right bridge. I just sat down on a bench to enjoy the sunshine and then an eerie sounding folk song started.

I quite like the fact that there are no posters or anything and people will just happen upon it. The song 'Lowlands' really suited the space.

Here's a review from The Skinny.
