CMC releases a new podcast
CMC launches ‘amplify’, a new podcast on contemporary music and composers from Ireland
"CMC hopes that amplify will become embedded in the new music sector on the island, reaching both the regular contemporary music audience and new listeners who are culturally curious," says Evonne Ferguson, CMC Director and co-presenter of the podcast. "CMC believes that this dedicated podcast for new music from Ireland has the potential to raise the profile of contemporary music from the island of Ireland, and provide a space for critical reflection and engagement with the music, and with many of the artform’s key issues and initiatives."
The first episode of amplify features a conversation with composer Amanda Feery on her recent work and on the current economic challenges of working as a composer in Dublin.
Episode 1 of amplify is available to listen to here. This episode is presented by Evonne Ferguson and Jonathan Grimes, with recording and production by Keith Fennell.
