12 May 2010

I am very pleased to announce that my piece "wave, particle, falling leaves" will be played at The Dragonfly Multi-Arts Festival at Ekehagens Forntidsby, Åsarp near Gothenburg, Sweden. This festival, organised by The Hollow Egg, will take place 20-22 August in a bronze-age settlement and open-air museum. I doubt I can afford to attend but would love to hear this four-channel composition for voice issuing from between the trees!

All day Saturday (10am-5pm) I played back the sounds of the streets into the streets from the retailer Gold Mine Jewellers. This was part The Catherine Street Culture Dig (CAT DIG), a project of the SpiritStore collective, as part of ev+a 2010. My sound installation was just one part of a profusion of events including music, dance, performance art, printing, video, puppetry... pretty well anything! I started by recording early one morning at the exact same spot the speakers were later placed. The piece is hence a form of time travel for the sounds.

I have been selected as one of the artists at this year's ev+a exhibition, Ireland's pre-eminent juried show. Each year a different international curator chooses and commissions works highlighting the most interesting contemporary art. This time it's Elizabeth Hatz from Sweden, who has been collaborating with the Univerity of Limerick's architecture department. Generally sound art gets missed out, but not this year!

26 April 2009

I just did a remix for Leafcutter John which you can find on his blog. He has made available the files for "Big Black Eyes", from which I produced the "Iris Mix", keeping the downtempo feel and making it a tad more abstract and spacious. I rather like the way it starts and progresses arbitrarily, before exulting in the minimal piano line. Everything comes together in the last chord. I did this without listening to the original or any of the previous submissions.

1 January 2009

Did I mention? I'm in school brushing up on twentieth century music theory and practice, by way of studying for my Masters. One term done and two to go. But this won't slow my output (which is never more than a trickle anyway).

Join me this Saturday evening at Baker's Place, Limerick as part of the ongoing micronite series. I'll be on early, so make your way to the undergound venue at 9pm for some beeps and bloops.

This Saturday at 5:30pm, if you happen to be in Mainz Germany, drop by the Antiquariat am Ballplatz to hear me debut a new sound art piece. I have the honour of kick-starting Die Gegenwart Von Jean Baudrillard, a two day conference on that thinker. I will be premiering "The 'Absence' Of Baudrillard", a granular synthesis improvisation. More on my blog here and here.
