Temple Bar Opens Up! featuring Fergal Dowlong
Dublin, 13 July 2004
The Contemporary Music Centre presents Fergal Dowling’s twenty-minute electroacoustic work, Pass, in Meeting House Square at 5.30pm on Sunday 18 July 2004 as part of the second Temple Bar Opens Up! A cultural open day.
From 1.00 pm to 6.00 pm over forty cultural organizations will come together to show their work in a day of performances, readings, concerts, exhibitions, films and tours. Many organisations will also open their buildings so you can experience the wealth of activity of Dublin’s cultural quarter.
Dubliner Fergal Dowling was born in 1965 and studied at Trinity College Dublin. His most recent compositions combine sound spatialisation with real-time interaction, and can be presented as installations or as concert pieces.
Other highlights of the Temple Bar Opens Up! day include:
For the kids: Come along to enjoy a whole series of family-oriented activities on Meeting House Square including Kids call the shots, a free photographic workshop for children; an interactive percussion performance with the musicians behind the hugely successful Ark show, The Elements; and a performance of Chinese traditional music by the China Conservatory of Music.
For the grown-ups: From mid-afternoon, the Meeting House Square stage will showcase an eclectic music programme featuring jazz, rock and electro-acoustic sounds: ten-piece jazz collective Fuzzy Logic, young rock bands from the Temple Bar Music Centre’s Noise Party, and CMC’s Fergal Dowling performance (see above).
There are plays, exhibitions, open rehearsals, readings, dance performances, film screenings and more at numerous venues throughout the area. You can even do a workshop to write, direct, act and shoot your own movie scene! Definitely something for everyone, young and old, so get yourself down to Temple Bar on 18 July for a truly cultural day.
All events are free. Details from the Temple Bar Information Office at 12 Essex Street East, tel. 01-677 2255 or the Temple Bar web site: www.templebar.ie
