Piece by Piece #5: Cora Venus Lunny
IMC and Triskel are coming together to host a weekly sequence of online solo performances featuring leading Irish improvisers, streaming each Friday at 8pm.
The 5th concert in the series comes from violinist Cora Venus Lunny. Lunny is well-known for her pedigree in classical and traditional music, playing with artists from Nigel Kennedy to Sinead O’Connor. As an improviser and composer, she brings her virtuoso technique on violin and viola together with a fascination with consciousness and groove, to bring the dizzying heights of contemporary classical string playing into jazz and folk-influenced soundworlds.
In the Piece by Piece series, each artist’s input performance will influence or inspire the next performance in this musical chain. Piece by piece, artists will create new improvised work, based on the preceding work. Improvising musicians are uniquely skilled at interpretation and spontaneous creation allowing for fresh creation of the highest calibre.
