SOUND: composition, installations, performance, releases



Daghdha Space, St. John's Church, John's Square, Limerick, Ireland. 3 July 2010.


OPENED was a series of choreograhic performances designed to highlight the artists in the Daghdha Mentoring Programme.

For OPENED3:SPATIAL Edd Schouten was thinking big, choreographing thirteen dancers over a two hour period. He invited me to create a sound environment

I used Reaktor to create instruments that would allow me to augment the space. I used two materials in combination: simple sine tones and field recordings. These were organised vertically (simultaneously), horizontally (sequentially) and spatially using a system of six speakers.

The result, like so much else under the auspices of Daghdha, was something special and impossible to repeat.

Press Release

Join us after the Saturday Market and before the evening's Mardi Gras for a social and cultural event.

Daghdha invites you to OPENED3:SPATIAL a uniquely engaging event by Edd Schouten, artist and choreographer on the Daghdha Mentoring Programme, OPENED3 is based on his current investigations: "dialogues in spatial engagement".

OPENED3: SPATIAL will take place throughout the afternoon on Saturday 3rd July and you are welcome to experience the work from various viewpoints, to move around the Space and come and go as you please. Homemade lemonade and ice tea will be served in a relaxed outside setting, weather permitting and everyone is welcome.

Robin Parmar has designed an original soundscape for the day with performances by Jesse den Dulk, Isabella Oberländer, Lucy Suggate, Christina Gangos, Kaspar Aus, Emmalena Fredrikson, Giorgio Convertito, Dianne Reddington, Luke Howlin, Christopher Mahon, Cathy Walsh, Maria Svensson, Gwen McHale and more.

"I will work with the performers on movement quality and spatial engagement strategies which I will then orchestrate into a durational score. Within the Space of the Daghdha Church will emerge a hyper real simulation where arbitrary compositions and perceived relationships materialise according to the viewer's own subjective perception". -- Edd Schouten


Thanks to Edd and all the dancers.
