Music Current 2019 programme online
DUBLIN SOUND LAB is pleased to announce the Music Current 2019 festival programme is now online –
Considered as the ‘Fringe’ of Irish new music festivals, Music Current is a platform for the newest contemporary music, hosting five concerts over four days. Now in its fourth year, the festival programme has a decidedly theatrical flavour, featuring Steven Kazuo Takasugi’s concert-length masterwork Sideshow, in which Swiss Ensemble Tzara ‘perform’ in the theatrical sense. The theatrical theme continues with another Swiss group Retro Disco who take inspiration from Dadaist aesthetics to create absurdist performances.
The festival opens with a double-bill programme: SWEENEY LIVES ! featuring three major ‘radiophonic’ work by Irish electronic music pioneer, FRANK CORCORAN.
