Luminate: Live Music Now Scotland celebrates 30 years

In 2014, Live Music Now Scotland – an organisation that promotes the work of stellar young artists – celebrates its 30th birthday. A blazing trail of commissions has followed in the charity’s wake.

In recognition of these three decades’ achievements, Delphian has taken a snapshot of LMN’s activity, itself a miniature picture of the wider cultural endeavours taking place in Scotland. Some of the country’s shining young artists have recorded recent works commissioned or co-commissioned by LMN, including several works developed in conjunction with innovative community projects.

A broad canvas of activity, flecked with intriguing and beautiful details.
