This coming Wednesday, 30 Nov, the Quiet Music Ensemble will be guests of the Contemporary Music Centre’s monthly Salon Series in a performance of works in the National Concert Hall.
The salon will feature four members of the QME performing works by Susan Geaney and John Godfrey as well as a group improvisation.
Vacuum by Susan Geaney was written especially for the ensemble in response to a call for works from the Irish Composers’ Collective in April 2011. Washing Yourself With Food by QME’s Artistic Director John Godfrey was written for QME’s appearance at this year’s Hilltown New Music Festival, and involves spatially-distributed CD players, improvising musicians and the audience strolling around the performance space. Get there early to gain the full benefit of the ambulatory experience!
