“Site Of Sound”
Holy Trinity Church,East Ferry
on the 4th June at 8pm
The Quiet Club with special guest dancer choreographer Inma Pavon return to Holy Trinity Church, East Ferry, Midleton, Co Cork
on the 4th June at 8pm to continue with their sonic explorations of this very unique space. After a hugely successful concert there last month to a delightful listening audience they will return to continue their sonic adventures.
They will be joined on this occasion by the dancer choreographer Inma Pavon Director Of The New Youth Dance Company and Cork based artist Irene Murphy whose latest work “Not Just Rivers” was launched recently at New Music Dublin by Diatribe Records
. “Site Of Sound” offers a unique listening experience in one of Irelands hidden architectural gems. Holy Trinity Church, East Ferry, Midleton is situated beside the water on the edge of Cork Harbour. Rarely used as a concert venue it offers unique sonic possibilities along with the fact that it doesn’t even have electricity and is lit and heated by gas. This adds up to a very unique ambience combined with the setting sun shining through the beautiful stained glass windows. They will explore its unique acoustics to the full and will take the audience on a once in a lifetime listening experience. Listening is at the core of The Quiet Club’s practice and their work is totally free improvisation which always returns to “listening” as its core. Regarded as one of Ireland’s leading sound art/improvisation groups they have performed all over the world and have numerous CDs and other releases. Their work is available from www.farpointrecordings.com. With their blend of homemade and adapted instrumentation along the amazing choreographer, dance and movement artist Inma Pavon this promises to be another great one off listening and visual experience. As well as a meditation on the physicality of the space it will inhabit there will be the sonic exploration to accompany it . Advance booking is strongly advised as the venue is small.
