Rarity

  • National Museum of Ireland Kildare Street Dublin, Dublin Ireland (map)

Premiere of rupture I, work for live voices and electronics featuring pre recorded vocals, whispers and violin effects.

rupture was inspired by the organic wall of sound & disruptions in thunder/storms and how the sound versus visual delay plays with our perception of time and distance. with the voice as the timbral centre I've brought these qualities into a more intimate place, where the singers are asked to sing facing each other in pairs.

"the dew is falling on your head, can you feel it
can you see me fall apart"
