Limerick Printmakers is delighted to host the first performance in a short tour of ‘Shadow Once Complete’, a new musical project on Monday, March 21st at 6pm.
Throughout March 2022, in venues in Dublin, Cork and Limerick, musical group Béal present a new collaboration, developed from the Contemporary Music Centre’s Colleagues Scheme, between violinist Larissa O’Grady and composer David Bremner. They have devised ‘algorithmic storytelling’ combining algorithmic text, live electronics and lattice-based improvisation on violin.
The storytelling is done by the violinist, whose pitches and dynamics act on the patch, prompting weighted-random projected text. The use of a MUGIC bow motion sensor adds an extra element.
Béal has commissioned new texts for the performances from Joanna Walsh and Kit Fryatt. Limerick Printmakers and other venues were chosen in response to the text-based nature of their work, printing presses, printing museums and St Audoen’s Church – from where art has been removed from the walls. The concerts are designed as a really immersive experience for their audience.
The performance is concerned with how meaning is constructed by an audience from limited building blocks, the invisible connections between words, making this process explicit, so a ‘constructivist’ setting works nicely; an assemblage of scattered partly-made artefacts is the perfect backdrop.
Limerick Printmakers Studio & Gallery acknowledges the financial support of the Arts Council, Umbrella Project, Limerick City and County Council and the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht on this venture
