Dublin Sound Lab presents reSounding Dublin

reSounding Dublin aims to explore and re-imagine the sonic and urban landscape of Dublin City. The project involves the performance on 21 November 2012 of four new works specially composed for the historic organ of St Werburgh’s Church.

Organists Michael Quinn and David Bremner will perform the new works by Fergal Dowling, Gráinne Mulvey, David Bremner and Rob Canning. The works by Fergal Dowling, Gráinne Mulvey and David Bremner will involve a dialogue between the acoustic pipe organ and electronics, while Rob Canning’s piece will use the urban space near the Contemporary Music Centre on Fishamble Street as a secondary location, linked to St Werburgh’s using a bi-direction live network audio stream, in which the city literally ‘resounds’ the sound of the organ.

The Contemporary Music Centre will host a free pre-concert talk at 6.30pm in its library as part of the event, where the featured composers will discuss their new works.

Dublin Sound Lab is a contemporary music performance group specialising in new electroacoustic music and computer-mediated performance. The group was formed in 2008 by organist Michael Quinn and composer Fergal Dowling to perform new electroacoustic works by Irish and international composers.

reSounding Dublin is supported by Dublin City Council and presented in association with the Contemporary Music Centre. Tickets for the concert will be available on the door for €10.
