Louth Contemporary Music Society

Explore Ensemble

perform music by Clara Iannotta, Oliver Leith, Cassandra Miller and Sam Perkin (World Premiere)

1pm Saturday 17 June 2023

Oriel Centre at Dundalk Gaol.

On Saturday things get busy. At one o’clock the Explore Ensemble are in jail – the clean, intimate space of Dundalk Gaol. Their concert includes a new piece for string quartet and electronics by Irish live wire Sam Perkin, but most of the music is by Clara Iannotta: two urgently whispering quartets, both quite different, but both of them leading you along with the dream logic of a David Lynch movie. No wonder Iannotta is one of the most sought-after composers in Europe today.

Programme is:
Clara Iannotta – A Failed Entertainment (16′)
Oliver Leith – Blurry wake song (5′)
Sam Perkin – Awe (10′) world premiere
Cassandra Miller – Leaving (7′)
Clara Iannotta – dead wasps in the jam-jar (iii) (13′)
