Roasted Brown Café, Filmbase, Temple Bar
Free entry

The first in a new series of monthly talk events on topics around contemporary music. Part of the Irish Composers on Irish Music series, supported by Arts Council Ireland.

In Conversation is a new series of events by the Association of Irish Composers, as part of their dedication to creating new channels for the discussion and presentation of new music. In Conversation provides opportunities for composers, performers, presenters and the public to get together to discuss aspects of new music openly over a decent coffee. Events will include talks and presentations by guest composers and performers, panel discussions, listening sessions and opportunities for students and researchers in new music to present their work.

This inaugural In Conversation event will be a panel discussion on the Evolving Contemporary Culture, covering questions about how we present new music. Does the environment and culture of a concert hall best reflect the current interests of composers, performers and audiences today? Is the practise of programming classical music alongside other genres outside the concert hall merely a fad, or a gimmick?

Taking part in this discussion will be Sebastian Adams (RTÉ Composer in Residence, founder/director Kirkos Ensemble) and composer Raymond Deane and the AIC’s Peter Moran. All audience members are welcome to join the debate. The panel discussion will last c45-50minutes, and the café will stay open until 8pm, so stick around for Roasted Brown’s great coffee and a chat.
