Curious ears are welcome to join Crash Ensemble, as they take a first look at musical sketches of newly commissioned works from Crash Works creators - Aleksandr Nisse, Aoife King, Cathal O’Riordan, Lara Weaver, and Tim Doyle. An open session casting light on the creative process of these creators. You heard it first. 

This unique open session casts a light on the genesis of the creative process of 5 music creators exploring ideas of our relationship to the environment, sustainability, and climate action.

Crash Works is a commission and development hub for music creators at pivotal stages of their careers. A collaboration between Crash Ensemble and New Music Dublin, Crash Works offers a range of mentoring and supports, culminating in a commission for full ensemble by each creator to be premiered at New Music Dublin in 2025.
