Softday, Uisce Salach - Launch event

About this event

SOFTDAY, UISCE SALACH

Uisce Salach is a project by Softday inspired by water analyses from domestic water supplies from the River Liffey, its tributaries in Dublin City and from Dublin Port. The project involved a collaborative process engaging with communities of interest and creative and scientific collaborators. The resulting musical piece was performed live at Liberty Hall Theatre in Dublin on 27 November 2019 and the film being premiered at SIRIUS features a recording of that event. Performers include the Irish Chamber Orchestra, the Softday Citizen Scientist Ensemble, the Uisce Salach choir and special guests from Dublin Dockworkers Preservation Society.

Softday is the collaborative practice of Sean Taylor and Mikael Fernström. They create sonifications, objects and performances. They operate in the ‘cracks’ separating various media and genres such as expanded theatre, sound, sculpture, music, dance and applications of new technologies. They explore the human relation to, and understanding of, the environment, considering issues relating to natural cycles and climate change.

LAUNCH EVENT

SIRIUS

11 December, 3pm (doors at 2.45pm)

Limited capacity; public health COVID-19 guidelines and restrictions apply. See below.

The premiere of the film Uisce Salach is preceded by two short films: a video of carillonneur Adrian Patrick Gebruers playing Softday’s All Things Are Not Quiet Silent (2018–21) on the 49-bell Carillon of St. Colman's Cathedral, Cobh; As I Roved Out One Morning, 2021, a sea shanty composed by Hannah Fahey and performed by the Softday Deep Water Singer. Both pieces are part of Sounds of the Unthinkable, a multimedia production commissioned by SIRIUS.

Following the screening, Softday are joined by Miguel Amado, the director of SIRIUS, for a panel discussion around the genesis and themes of Uisce Salach and related works.
