About this Event

Softday are delighted to announce the world premier of Uisce Salach (Dirty Water), a unique sound composition sonifying and vocalising data related to water analyses, which takes place on the 27th of November at 7pm at Liberty Hall. This composition was created by computer software programmes, with data supplied from scientists, citizen scientists and environmentalists.

The world premier of Uisce Salach (Dirty Water) will be performed live by the Irish Chamber Orchestra led by Kenneth Rice, in combination with the Softday Citizen Scientist Ensemble, a form of public laptop orchestra. A new choral composition If I fall in the Liffey will be performed by the Uisce Salach Choir. Special guests include Declan Byrne and John Walsh from the Dublin Dockworkers Preservation Society and award winning sound artist La Cosa Preziosa.
