Kathy Hinde – Acts of Balancing and Unbalancing (2022)
Anna Murray – Aioi: leaves laden with words (2022)
Susan Geaney – new work (2023) [world premiere]
Karen Power, Mary Nunan and Atoosa Pour Hosseini – we return to ground (2022)

Fragile soundscapes, remarkable sonorities painted into pregnant silences and deep sonic contemplation—join Cork-based experimental music group Quiet Music Ensemble for this spellbinding afternoon concert.

Featuring three Dublin premieres alongside a brand new work composed by Susan Geaney, this performance embraces especially built instruments, field recordings, reflections on Noh and elements from dance and film alongside QME’s unique sonic language. QME celebrates sound as a creative, contemplative and liberating engagement with the worlds inside and outside of us.
