Sound Work at Kilkenny Arts Festival 2013 curated by Crash Ensemble
Call for submissions
To mark our 40th festival, Kilkenny Arts Festival is delighted to be working with the Crash Ensemble to realise key elements of our festival programme and we now welcomes submissions for electro acoustic works for inclusion in the festival.
Crash Ensemble was founded in 1997 by composer Donnacha Dennehy; conductor and pianist Andrew Synott; and clarinetist Michael Seaver. Since its first sold-out concert in Dublin in the autumn of 1997, the group has attracted enthusiastic audiences for its particular blend of music, video and electronics. The group is interdisciplinary in outlook, and considers its sound engineers, technicians and video makers as much a part of the enterprise as the musicians.
Crash has commissioned or premiered a large amount of works by many composers incuding Peter Adriaansz, Gerald Barry, Gavin Bryars, Raymond Deane, Donnacha Dennehy, Arnold Dreyblatt, Stephen Gardner, Michael Gordon, John Godfrey, Andrew Hamilton, David Lang, Terry Riley, Jurgen Simpson, Gerhard Stabler, Jennifer Walshe, Ian Wilson and Kevin Volans. It has worked directly with all the above, and with other composers such as Louis Andreissen, Gloria Coates, Roger Doyle, Michael Maierhof and Steve Reich.
Works will be selected by Crash Ensemble and presented at specific locations surrounding the Heritage Council during the festival, which runs 9-18 August, 2013.
