The Real Life Rock Opera: Volume 1


Ross Sinclair

The Real Life Rock Opera: Volume One was an installation created by Scottish artist Ross Sinclair. This exhibition explored ideas around what is the real Scotland and what is Scotch myth, using music, narrative, sculpture and performance.

As part of the exhibition Ross produced a CD of songs, which included traditional titles such as Will Ye No Come Back Again, Bonnie Mary O’ Argyll and Abide With Me as well his own songs, such as Real Life is Coming Round the Bend and I Love Real Life. Every visitor to the exhibition received a free copy of this CD.
