The Contemporary Music Centre is once again collaborating with Walled City Music on a number of new music events throughout the Walled City Music

Festival (WCMF), Derry. The festival runs from 19 to 26 July and CMC will be in attendance at new music events across 21 and 22 July.

Irish composer Frank Lyons’ new work, The River Still Sings, is performed by the Fidelio Trio, 7:30pm, 21 July. As part of this concert, CMC will host an interval discussion with Frank Lyons, Paul Moore, who collaborated with the composer on the sound design and visuals, and Mary Dullea of the Fidelio Trio. The River Still Sings is a multimedia project that features text by Derry writer Seamus Deane, narration by actor James Nesbitt, sound design and visuals by Paul Moore and a score to be performed by the Fidelio Trio. It was commissioned by the City of London Festival with the Walled City Music

Festival, part of the Derry-Londonderry City of Culture 2013, to celebrate the 400th anniversary of links between the two cities. Admission is free to the interval discussion for concert ticket holders. The event takes place in The Great Hall, University of Ulster, Magee Campus.

The Contemporary Music Centre in conjunction with Walled City Music is also offering a unique opportunity to work with composer Brian Irvine and leading new music ensemble Fidelio Trio, producing new music for piano trio in a two-day residency in Derry. Six places are available for composers to write a 3-5 minute piece from scratch on Sunday, 21 July. Pieces will be based upon the news, using a newspaper from that particular morning.

All materials will be work-shopped with the Fidelio Trio on Monday afternoon, 22 July and performed at a special concert that evening, which is open to the public and has free admission. This residency will take place in the Foyle Arts Building, Magee Campus, University of Ulster, Derry. Facilities and overnight accommodation on 21 July are kindly provided by the University of Ulster. The closing date for applications from composers is 16 July. Applications should be sent to Yulin Zheng ei.cmc@gnehzyta, c/o The Contemporary Music Centre, 19 Fishamble Street, Temple Bar, Dublin 8. Further details can be found on
