Niroshini collaborated with Nik Paget-Tomlinson to create the sound design for Drift, a co-production from Vision Mechanics and Nordland Visual Theatre. The soundtrack was created for headphones, featuring a song cycle composed by Eddie McGuire and a vocal performance from Gerda Stevenson. Inspired by the story of Betty Mouat of Shetland, who drifted alone at sea in 1886, Drift is an installation experience of soundscape, sculpture, music and story. Drift toured beaches across Scotland in summer 2015 and beaches across Norway in summer 2016.
