CRASH WORKS 2023-2025

CRASH WORKS 2023-2025

CRASH WORKS is an initiative to commission and support the artistic and professional development of music creators, from any genre, at pivotal stages of their careers offered in partnership with New Music Dublin, Crash Ensemble musicians & our team of creative minds.

CRASH WORKS 2023-2025

5 music creators, selected from an open call, have been commissioned to write a new work for Crash in partnership with New Music Dublin festival. These 5 brilliant creators are:

Aoife King
Aleksandr Nisse
Cathal O'Riordan
Lara Weaver
Tim Doyle

Over the next two years, the creators will take part in our professional development hub incorporating Crash Ensemble musicians, our team of lovely, skilled, talented people, and the composers/music creators around us to fully support the commission and presentation of each new work and allow time for thinking, creating, collaborating, investigating and re-defining what it is to be a music creator. We will share our knowledge of the sector with them, while exploring and supporting new ways of creating music and the people who create this music.

Their commissions will be premiered at New Music Dublin in 2025.

We want to create music in a different way and to explore new ideas, new sounds and new music.

From the open call process 8 music creators were also selected to write a 3 minute postcard piece for Crash:

Darragh Kelly
Maeve Kelly
Jenn Kirby
Dani Larkin
Neil O’Connor
Paul Scully
Michael Sullivan
Elle Wadding

And… Celsey McFadden has been selected to collaborate with us on a video installation for New Music Dublin in 2024.
