Cork Midsummer Festival: Homespace
Date: Thursday 17th June
Place: St Peter's Cork
Tickets: Free Admission
What does a home sound like, and what is even the meaning of the word? HomeSpace is an innovative and absorbing work for soundtrack and percussionist by Cork Phonographers Union, a group of 10 Cork-based artists with an interest in sound recording. HomeSpace seeks to evoke familiar spaces in new ways, expanding upon both our experiences and memories of the spaces we spend much of our lives in.
Artists Claire Guerin, John Hough, Rob Ireson, Brian Mac Domhnaill, Harry Moore, Irene Murphy, Catherine Murray, Katie O’Looney, Mick O’Shea and Ian Wilson have produced an imaginative exploration of the idea of home in which the listener will simultaneously hear the familiar, the unfamiliar and the new. A score by group member Ian Wilson for acclaimed Cork percussionist Alex Petcu adds an extra sonic element to the work and allows Petcu to be a guide through our virtual sounding home.
With funds from the Arts Council, administered by CREATE. Duration c.40 minutes.
Cork Midsummer Festival, St Peter’s Cork, Saturday June 17th, 1pm. Free Admission
