“Originating last year in Iceland, [Tectonics] 2013 it has expanded to include Scotland and Israel, and is set to also assimilate Australia next year. Yet its perspective is local as well as international – the Glasgow leg is closely enmeshed with the city’s avant-garde community thanks in part to the co-curating efforts of Counterflows organiser Alasdair Campbell.”
Matt Evans, The List

"By any measure, what happened at Glasgow's City Halls over the weekend was an astonishing event, with a sizeable thirsty audience lapping up experimental music that ranged from a residency by a remarkable octogenarian American to improvisation by some of our own top names in modern rock and embraced a clutch of premieres of fine new music for the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra."
