MAD also encourages the exploration of mindfulness using sound to help us become more aware of our present moment experience.

This inspires both performance artwork including classical and contemporary music and is part of our therapeutic programme of sound therapy, voice and sound workshops and singing classes.

On International Peace Day 2013 the MAD team worked on a collaborative performance piece with artist David McCulloch. a message of peace was translated into morse code and rung out from the bells of The Steeple Church in Dundee city center.


These two methods of communication, no longer impact society in same way they used to, particularly a contemporary audience predominantly linked today by digital forms of communication.

David McCulloch (2013)

If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.
Nelson Mandela
