    Exotic timbres, pulsing rhythms and interlocking melody lines of a percussion ensemble at full tilt is a sound unlike any other. Add to this the positively viral energy of the CAN percussion trio and you are in for a real treat. It's the brainchild of Noel Eccles, musical director of the first Riverdance tour, member of folk-rock titans Moving Hearts, former principal percussionist with the RTE National Symphony Orchestra and go-to guy for a host of luminaries including U2, Elvis Costello, The Chieftains, Brian Eno and Elmer Bernstein. read more More

  • Is all now seenheard then forgotten?

    15th Jun 2012 (Fri) from 19:30 - 21:00

    Smock Alley Theatre
    Joyce's final masterpiece provides the jumping off point for this adventurous mix of improvised music and film. Performed by vocalist Dorothy Murphy, Barcelonian film maker Héctor Castells, and clarinettist Seán Mac Erlaine, this piece is an abstract homage to one of the English language's great works of abstraction. Using improvisation, repetition, collage and a personalised, devised language, Is now all seenheard then forgotten? reflects Finnegans Wake without any overt attempt to translate the text. These three innovative artists work with the poetic elements of the book, creating a sound-and-image atmosphere, which is both beautiful and otherworldly. More
