For Immediate Release
InterPlay -- An Exhibition of Interactive Sound Installations
27 August 2008
The Contemporary Music Centre opens its doors to welcome visitors of all ages as part of Dublin's Culture Night 2008, 6pm - 11pm, Friday 19 September, with a series of interactive sound installations.
The installations, which will allow visitors to experience a new world of music and sound, are being created especially for Culture Night by young Irish composers Jonathan Nagle, Sean Reed and Brian Solon.
Jonathan Nangle is presenting a system of three double pendulums, used in physics to prove the laws of chaos. The three pendulums are tuned and as they swing they create music, which is unique each time. Sean Reed has created an audiovisual representation of an oracle that gives personal prophecies, and Brian Solon is devising an audiovisual installation that the viewer controls by cycling a stationary bicycle.
"The Contemporary Music Centre is delighted to be taking part in Culture Night again, especially since its success has now made it a nationwide event," says Aoife FitzPatrick, Promotion Officer, the Contemporary Music Centre.
Culture Night is an initiative begun by Temple Bar Cultural Trust to encourage people to get out and experience everything on offer from Dublin's numerous cultural organisations. Since its beginning in 2006, Culture Night has grown to include over 100 of the city's arts and cultural organisations with the vast majority opening until 11pm, and their very own free events programme for young and old, which is expected to attract in excess of 100,000 people this year. This year Culture Night is expanding to other parts of the country, taking place in Cork, Limerick and Galway for the first time. For full details of these events please see www.culturenight.ie.
The Contemporary Music Centre is Ireland's national archive and resource centre for new music. The Centre is supported by the Arts Council/An Chomhairle Ealaíon and the Arts Council of Northern Ireland.
Admission is free. For further information on the event please contact Aoife FitzPatrick, Promotion Officer, The Contemporary Music Centre, 19 Fishamble Street, Temple Bar, Dublin 8 on 01 673 1922, or email email@example.com.
