The CD, which takes place in CMC from 6.30–7.30, will be launched by Aodán O Dubhghaill, Head of RTÉ lyric fm. The event will also include a performance by Baroque violinist Claire Duff of one of the works from the album: hang on, I’m not ready for a pig yet and an improvised performance by David Stalling, Anthony Kelly, John Godfrey and Karen Power.
Karen Power writes about the CD:
‘is it raining while you listen is a series of frozen sonic moments. It’s my first CD and the compositions date from 2007 right up to a field-recording based work written specially for the CD; forever ricefields. Some of them are electronic recordings and some involve exceptional performers from all over the world I’ve been lucky enough to collaborate with. I’ve also worked with artists from many other disciplines and to represent their voices in my work I’ve asked several of them to provide text, poetry, photographs and even the design of the CD cover right down to its texture. is it raining while you listen is a labour of love and could not have happened without the enthusiasm and dedication of Farpoint Recordings.’
The CD will be available for sale on the night at a special introductory price of €10.
