Our Cubes of Perpetual Light aren’t just miniature growing laboratories. They’re also the inspiration for new music – and you can hear it in quadraphonic sound at festivals and venues across Scotland this summer.

We’ve invited a range of leading musicians from home and aboard to create 12 new music commissions for our Cubes, all inspired by themes of sustainability and growth. They’ll be playing within each Cube around the country, but you can catch them all in epic quadrophonic sound in Dundee, Edinburgh, Inverness and Kelburn.

Our special Show Cube installations feature multiple Cubes integrated with stunning speaker systems and immersive lighting designed to bring the best out of the music. You can visit for free in Dundee, Edinburgh and Inverness, and ticket-holders can also catch an installation at Kelburn Garden Party in July. Join our mailing list for updates on exactly where and when you can tune in…
