Quiet Music Ensemble @ Kilkenny Arts Festival 2019
Founded by composer John Godfrey, and comprised of some of the best musicians in the country, the Quiet Music Ensemble is renowned for its innovative performances of experimental music, mixing improvisation with live electronics and recorded sounds. The ensemble’s repertoire of hushed, ambient pieces – often commissioned from celebrated composers like David Toop and Jennifer Walshe – are meditations on sound itself, designed to draw audiences into a state of ‘deep listening’ that richly rewards close attention.
This free performance in the Parade Tower features world premieres of works by composers including Marianthi Papalexandri-Alexandri and Heather Frasch. Stop by any time during the performance and immerse yourself in these entrancing soundscapes.
