night leaves breathing, DEAF09
Featuring the Quiet Music Ensemble with guest artist David Toop
5pm-10pm, Sat 31 Oct, Filmbase, Temple Bar, Dublin
The Quiet Music Ensemble concludes this year’s Dublin Electronic Arts Festival with a 5-hour spectacular of pieces by masters of experimental music, incredible sonic environments and drone-music, uncommon Dreamhouse and video.
The event features the Dublin premieres of pieces especially written for the group by Alvin Lucier, David Toop, Mark Applebaum and others, plus rare electronic immersive works by Eliane Radigue, John Godfrey and many more. Video will include the extraordinary Dreams of the Jungfrau by the artistic director of the Deep Listening Institute, Ione. This is also a rare occasion to catch some of the wealth of new music coming out of Cork city’s enviable Sound Art scene.
The climax of the event features author, artist and improviser David Toop, who will present on his research, perform improvisations and take part in his piece for the QME, night leaves breathing.
