University of Limerick Electronic Music Studio Launch Concert

Friday, 12 April 2024, 4.00pm

Located at the University of Limerick’s Dept. of Computer Science and Information Systems, the Digital Media and Arts Research Centre are delighted to launch a new facility dedicated to the art of electronic music. The ULEMS (University of Limerick Elecronic Music Studio) will be launched with a concert featuring performances by Sharon Phelan, Jonathan Impett & Juan Parro Cancino, Paddy Mulcahy, Neil O’Connor and Jürgen Simpson. Composer Roger Doyle will present the facility with an opening talk.

Location: CSIS Building University of Limerick
Time: April 12th 2024 - 16:00 to 21:00

This new ULEMS facility features a wide range of digital and analogue instruments demonstrating the history of practices that established electronic sound as one of most vibrant forms of music practices over the past century. The ULEMS facility augments the existing DMARC music studios and the 36 channel spatial audio environment: SpADE. The ULEMS will in due course support both students and invited Irish and international composers via a new residency programme.

DMARC is particularly proud to presents its newly commissioned Buchla 200e, an instrument rooted in the history of modular synthesis and regarded as one of the most ambitious of its kind. Designed by Don Buchla and originally released in 2004, the 200e heralded a return to the format he originally introduced in 1963. Buchla’s influence on the development of electronic music was particular evident in his emphasis on highly experimental approaches and his ideas and instruments are particular relevant to contemporary artists working with sound today. The ULEMS also offers composers access to tools and instruments by Roli, Schlappi Engineering, Nord, Doepfer and Eventide as well as sophisticated recording and surround sound monitoring.
