MUSIC CURRENT 2018 at Smock Alley Theatre Dublin
DUBLIN SOUND LAB are bringing MUSIC CURRENT 2018 to Smock Alley Theatre!
This three day festival is considered as the 'Fringe' of Irish new music festivals. Running for the third year, the festival is a platform for the newest contemporary music which hosts four concerts over the three days.
It focuses on piano repertoire and includes virtuosic American piano/percussion quartet Yarn|Wire, Belgian iconoclast Stefan Prins and his Piano Hero series of works for piano, renowned Irish improviser Izumi Kimura performing John Cage’s seminal ‘Sonatas and Interludes’ for prepared piano; and UK-based Xenia Pestova presenting a programme of all new works for piano and electronics.
Also during the festival, Xenia will perform a special concert of new international works developed during the festival by participating composers, one of whom will receive this year’s MUSIC CURRENT COMMISSION award of €2,500.
