Lunchtime Concert – The Quiet Club, Dr Óscar Mascareñas and Guests
November 21, 2019 at 1:15 pm - 2:00 pm
This concert features a unique performance by Ireland’s leading sound art improvisation ensemble, The Quiet Club. The Cork based ensemble is Danny McCarthy and Mick O’Shea. Danny and Mick collaborate regularly with artists from many disciplines and in this concert they are joined by Limerick based improviser and composer Dr Óscar Mascarenas and guests. The Quiet Club pushes the boundaries of sound making and listening by employing a wide range of sound making devices ranging from stones, homemade instruments, electronics, amplified textures, Theremins and eld recordings.
Formed in 2006, the Quiet Club have met with considerable success and have become recognised as one of Ireland’s leading sound art improvisation groups. They have toured extensively in Ireland and have played at festivals in UK, Germany, Poland, Canada, China, USA and Japan. Recently they appeared at World Expo (Shanghai), Static (Liverpool) and I & E Festival, (Dublin), Mobius (Boston) and Harvestworks (New York), Black Iris Gallery, Richmond, Virginia. They took part in an extensive tour to USA last year. They frequently play together with guests, which in the past have included Mark Wastell, Stephen Vitiello, Mel Mercier, Steve Roden, Jed Spear, John Godfrey, Harry Moore, Iarla O’Lionard, David Toop, and many others.
