Hilltown New Music FestivalThe launch of the Hilltown New Music Festival will be held in the Contemporary Music Centre on 13th June at 6pm. The Hiltown New Music Festival takes place later in the summer on 20th and 21st July in Castlepollard, Co. Westmeath.

The Dublin launch will feature performances by Elizabeth Hilliard performing composer Gráinne Mulvey’s The Seafarer for soprano and electronics and Anthony Kelly and David Stalling with members of the Dublin Laptop Orchestra, as well as a programme of fixed medium sound works. The evening will be presented by RTÉ lyricfm Nova presenter, Bernard Clarke. Admission is free and all are welcome to come along.

Now in its sixth edition, the Hilltown New Music Festival continues to showcase Irish and international contemporary music and sonic art by presenting innovative new work to audiences and providing a sustainable place for contemporary arts in the Midlands.

The 2013 Festival takes place 20 and 21 of July, and will be based around an exciting series of concerts, performances and installations by *AR (Autumn Richardson & Richard Skelton), Barbara Lüneburg, Dublin Laptop Orchestra, Yonit Kosovske, The Open Rehearsals, Ruth Clinton and Niamh Moriarty, Katie O’Looney, Harry Moore, Anthony Kelly and David Stalling, Uwe Storch, Liz Hilliard, David Bremner, and many more.

As was done for the previous festivals, there are two open calls for works, one for scores by Irish based composers to be performed by the Hilltown ensemble-in-residence, and one international call for fixed medium audio works, which will be presented in a special listening room during the festival. Further details on the open calls for works available on www.hilltown.ie.
