An honest, human and emotive response for now and the future.
Tonight Crash Ensemble play a selection of their [REACTIONS] commissions & postcard miniatures for the first time to a live audience, alongside sounds from across the globe… and… the first outing of a brand new piece ‘Standing Water’ by Kevin Terry, winner of the National Concert Hall Jerome Hynes Young Composers’ Award.
A little bit about the [REACTIONS] series:
“Amidst the onset of the global pandemic, we commissioned Irish & International composers from a range of musical backgrounds to write new works for duos within the group. Building on existing collaborative partnerships and cultivating and nurturing new relationships, composers were invited to create a musical response to their experiences, the current state and their thoughts for the future.”
Crash Ensemble is strategically funded by the Arts Council of Ireland.
