One Pig is the story of a single, anonymous farm animal's journey from birth to plate. The album is an elegy to a life lived for the benefit of humans and raises complex questions about our relationship to these often-maligned and misunderstood creatures.
The album is made entirely out of sounds from the pig and its surroundings - the first squeals, the sound of it being alone for the first time, and the dripping of its blood after being butchered. The result is a delicate, beautiful, and occasional terrifying musical composition with a profundity rarely heard in electronic music.
The live show is a performance of the album with a five piece band, using keyboards, samplers, drum machines, and a brand new custom instrument - the "Sty Harp", built and performed by Edinburgh-based artist Yann Seznec.
After touring around the world from London to Berlin to Tokyo, One Pig now comes to Scotland for seven shows. Not to be missed.
