Sonic Vigil was founded in Cork as a celebration of sound and the art of making it. It has been running since 2005, making it the most established sound art event in Ireland ( we can see many more recent offsprings, which are directly linked to this event throughout the country.). It is a unique event, which culminates many local and national high-calibre sound art practices. In its 11 editions it has gone from strength to strength in merging sonic activities across the city, county, country and abroad. What began as a standalone concert event is now a multifaceted and collaborative mini-festival, which permeates Cork and Ireland throughout the year with offshoot and prelude workshops, CD/LP/DVD releases, concerts combining food with sound and many other events.  The vigil is unique to Ireland and its reputation is steadily growing throughout Europe and beyond. Sonic Vigil emerged from an increasingly vibrant Cork-based scene and was founded in 2005 to create an annual event as a celebration of Sound Art and the art of making it. It is a unique and experimental event that has been performed in some of Corks iconic cultural venues and has established Cork as Irelands leading centre for Sound Art.
