Description

An evening of live ambient music this Halloween at the Dublin Unitarian Church featuring live A/V performances from DONNACHA COSTELLO, Sunken Foal & Dreamcycles. An 8K projector, large cinema screen and Funktion1 soundsystem will be deployed to stunning effect. Capacity is limited and tickets are on sale now.

Donnacha Costello:
For 21 years, Donnacha Costello has been releasing electronic music, spanning genres from experimental modular recordings for Raster-Noton to groundbreaking ambient music for Mille Plateaux, and classic techno for his own Minimise label. In 2014 and 2015 respectively, “Love From Dust” and “Stay Perfectly Still”, two stunning albums of solo synthesiser music recorded live with a Buchla Music Easel, re-established Costello as an important figure in contemporary electronic music.

Costello followed these with the super-minimal “Mouvements”, an album of meditative drone music recorded with the EMS Synthi. This album marked a further refinement in Costello’s approach to contemporary minimalist composition and, along with remarkable visual accompaniment by artist and designer Geoff Barker, forms the core of this A/V performance which premiered at the Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona last year, and takes the stage at the Unitarian Church this October. Donnacha Costello is supported by Music Network’s Music Capital Scheme, funded by The Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht. Music Network is funded by The Arts Council of Ireland.

Sunken Foal:
Sunken Foal has been writing, performing and producing electronic and acoustic music for almost 20 years. Under monikers Sunken Foal and Press Charges, and as a member of Ambulance and The Natural History Museum he has released on Planet-Mu, Black Acre, Acroplane, The Fear, Front End Synthetics, U:Mack, Heresy and Countersunk. Championed by BBC6 DJ Mary Anne Hobbs, Donal Dineen and the late John Peel, Dunk's music covers a large area showcasing his deep knowledge of synthesizers, grooving rhythms and plucked instruments as well as a keen ear for a unique sound and emotive melody.

In summer 2017, Dunk released his ambient epic ‘Supersede’ under the guise of ‘Minced Oath’ through www.countersunk.org. Written, performed and recorded over two weeks in the summer of 2017 using a collection of analogue synthesizers, vintage outboard effects and a simple mixing desk, each track was improvised and recorded straight to two track with no edits or composites. Sometimes serene, sometimes malevolent, ‘Supersede’ weaves through dense sonic peaks and troughs where the hum of electricity meets the texture of organic matter.

Dunk has collaborated on many audio visual ventures with Tim Redfern over the years where the duo seek to explore the visceral, kinetic links between music and the moving image. Their current live show fuses warm waves of sonic texture with slowly morphing pastoral imagery.

Dreamcycles:
Jennifer Moore aka Dreamcycles is a DJ and sound artist from Dublin. She will open the event with selected unreleased materials, recordings and non-music, inspired by her second homeland of Canada, alongside her own footage shot and edited specifically for this show. She is currently travelling through Vancouver, picking up inspiration and ideas along the way which will no doubt feed into this performance. Stay tuned for more details on her return.
