Want to meet some of Ireland's new music makers? See what they look like and hear how they sound?
The Art of Sound exhibition showing in Ballymote Community Library, Co. Sligo, 1st – 31st May offers the opportunity to do just that. Admission is free and the exhibition runs during library opening hours. Presented by the Contemporary Music Centre this multi-media exhibition looks at new music making from the first idea through to the final performance. The creative process usually takes place behind closed doors, but this exhibition brings it to life through striking photographs of the composers and images of their work.
The Art of Sound exhibition features photographer Eugene Langan’s dramatic and perceptive photographs of Irish composers. An audio-guide narrated by Eamonn Lawlor, RTÉ lyric fm, brings to life the music that is displayed, leading to a truly unique and rich experience for the visitor.
In tandem with the exhibition the Contemporary Music Centre, in partnership with Music in Drumcliffe, presents a New Music Literary Trailduring the Music in Drumcliffe Festival, 5 – 7 May 2012 featuring composers Brian Boydell, Rhona Clarke and Donnacha Dennehy and music inspired by W.B. Yeats. This New Music Literary Trail takes place in the grounds of St Columba’s Church, Drumcliffe and is FREE admission.
