Kirkos Ensemble present 'Speaking of Music'

5 January 2019 17:15

Royal Irish Academy of Music (RIAM)

Specially commissioned for Speaking of Music, the centre piece will be ‘Listening to Stories’ by Jenn Kirby.
‘Listening to Stories’ explores the themes of theatre, silliness and humour in music as a superficial way to address a more serious theme of inequality and silent voices; attempting to listen to unheard stories. Many other world and Irish premieres will join the new commission.
Those contributing to the evening include composer Jenn Kirby, Sydney-based composer performer Solly Frank, experimental musician Andy Ingamells, composers Sebastian Adams, Susan Geaney & Robert Coleman, and more to be announced.
The evening runs as follows:
5.15pm ж Doors
5.30pm ж Andy Ingamells performs his work Piano Recital.
6.30pm ж Installations including Sebastian Adams’ Beethoven Freeze, & Susan Geaney’s Drips.
