PRE-CONCERT TALK at Contemporary Music Centre, Wednesday 21 November, 6.30pm
Composers David Bremner, Rob Canning, Fergal Dowling and Gráinne Mulvey discuss their new works, specially written for the 18th-century organ of St Werburgh’s Church as part of the first stage of Dublin Sound Lab’s reSounding Dublin project, which aims to explore and re-imagine the sonic and urban landscape of Dublin City. Rob Canning will talk about the technology he has developed to stream bi-directional audio between St Werburgh’s and a secondary acoustic space, in this case, the space in front of the Contemporary Music Centre’s building on Fishamble Street.
CONCERT at St Werburgh’s Church, Wednesday 21 November, 8.00pm
Michael Quinn (organ) and David Bremner (organ) perform new works specially composed for the 18th-century organ of St Werburgh’s Church, with Fergal Dowling, Gráinne Mulvey and Rob Canning (electronics, live audio streaming). The works by Fergal Dowling, Gráinne Mulvey and David Bremner will involve a dialogue between the acoustic pipe organ and electronics, while Rob Canning’s piece will use the urban space near the CMC on Fishamble Street as a secondary location, linked to St Werburgh’s using a bi-direction live network audio stream, in which the city literally ‘resounds’ the sound of the organ.
