Quiet Music Ensemble: Seán Mac Erlaine, clarinets, sonic objects; Roddy O’Keeffe, trombone, sonic objects; John Godfrey, e-guitar and electronics, sonic objects; Ilse De Ziah, cello, sonic objects; Dan Bodwell, double bass, sonic objects; Alexis Nealon, sound.
Fragile soundscapes, remarkable sonorities painted into pregnant silences and deep sonic contemplation—join Cork-based experimental music group Quiet Music Ensemble for this spellbinding afternoon concert. Featuring three Dublin premieres alongside a brand new work composed by Susan Geaney, this performance embraces especially built instruments, field recordings, reflections on Noh and elements from dance and film alongside QME’s unique sonic language. QME celebrates sound as a creative, contemplative and liberating engagement with the worlds inside and outside of us.
