Quiet Music Ensemble

Saturday, 2 July 2022, 8.00pm

Quiet Music Ensemble brings three world premieres to Solstice Arts Centre in July, with music by renowned Sound Artist Kathy Hinde and Irish composers Francis Heery and Anna Murray.

Drawing respectively on the beautiful and subtle sonorities of especially created new instruments, the poetry of Yeats and on Japanese Noh theatre, the pieces were created especially for QME, responding to the ensemble’s unique, meditative, mesmeric music.

This event is part of the learning & engagement programme which accompanies the exhibition‘I am sitting in a Room’. It is supported by the Arts Council.

Programme:
Heery – Moon Phases 2022
Murray – Aioi: leaves laden with words
Hinde – Acts of Balancing and Unbalancing

Quiet Music Ensemble
Founded in 2008, QME is a unique Irish group dedicated to music that explores perception and reflection through spiritually and physically quiet music. “The very notion of ‘quiet music’ is something of a revolutionary act”, said the UK Independent in 2015 and described QME’s music as exerting “a mesmeric power”. QME enmeshes natural sound with performed sound; the visual with the sonic: its performances invite us into an extraordinary ‘listening space’ that is both deep and moving.

The group consists of some of the top solo and chamber performers in the country: John Godfrey, founder/director/electric guitar; Seán Mac Erlaine, clarinets/saxes; Roddy O'Keefe, trombone; Ilse De Ziah, cello; Dan Bodwell, double bass; Alexis Nealon, sound engineer.
