Improvising pianist and composer Izumi Kimura’s residency will explore the connection between environmental and musical sounds, by creating field recordings and live music that interact and play with each other. The soundscape of Dún Laoghaire is very rich, and every sound contains space, energy and movements of people, culture and nature. The resulting performances in the dlr LexIcon Studio on Thursday 4th July and Thursday 1st August will filter these sonic histories through a musical ear, bringing them to the here and now via the act of improvisation. Izumi will be joined by collaborators Anthony Kelly (one of the creators of the intriguing Dún Laoghaire Sound Map), vocalist Olesya Zdorovetska and violinist/violist Cora Venus Lunny, both intuitive musicians of mastery and integrity.

The Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council and Music Network Musician-in-Residence scheme is jointly funded by the Arts Council, and managed by Music Network.
