An Aberdeenshire musician is set to bring her live show to Dumfries with a unique performance as part of the Big Burns Supper Festival.


Fiona Soe Paing will perform a multi-media set with music and visuals from her forthcoming album ‘Alien Lullabies’ at the festival’s newest venue
, New Performance Space at the Electric Theatre Workshop,
on January 30th, in Europe’s largest winter fringe festival.

Fresh from presenting work at London’s global festival of music ideas, Music Tech Fest, and a show at Cineworld for Aberdeen International Film Festival, Fiona will perform
projected animation by New Zealand artist Zennor Alexander in what promises to be a hypnotic combination of cinema screening and live gig.
The musician, who has drawn comparisons to Scandinavian songstress Bjork, will combine her blend of off-world electronica and ethereal soundscapes with stunning 3D animations and live vocals to create an immersive and memorable cinematic experience. Fiona’s work was recently rated as “Outstanding” in the 2014 Noise Festival Showcase Awards, curated by electronic music pioneer Brian Eno, and her last EP release “Tower Of Babel” was given a Four Stars rating in The Skinny Magazine.

For Fiona, the chance to get involved with the Big Burns Supper was something she simply couldn’t turn down.
She said: “The chance to perform in Europe’s largest winter fringe festival was really something I couldn’t turn down and I’m excited to be bringing something a bit different to what is an incredibly diverse and
exciting programme of  music and theatre events, alongside punk icons The Undertones, and Scottish Hip-Hop heroes Hector Biserk”

The performance of Alien Lullabies will take place at 1pm at
the New Performance Space, Electric Theatre Workshop, 28 Munches Street, Dumfries
on Friday January 30th. Tickets cost £6.50/£4.50 concessions, and are available in advance from the Munches Street box office, or telephone 01387 271820. More information can be found at
