Irish Tour @ Linenhall Arts Centre, Castlebar
June 21, 2022
An honest, human and emotive response for now and the future.
Tonight we play a selection of our [REACTIONS] commissions & postcard miniatures, alongside sounds from across the globe and a new piece ‘Standing Water’ by Kevin Terry, winner of the National Concert Hall Jerome Hynes Young Composers’ Award.
A little bit about our [REACTIONS] series:
Amidst the onset of the global pandemic, we commissioned Irish & International composers from a range of musical backgrounds to write new works for duos within the group. Building on existing collaborative partnerships and cultivating and nurturing new relationships, composers were invited to create a musical response to their experiences, the current state and their thoughts for the future.
