People's Park, Limerick, Ireland, 13 March 2015.
Ed Devane's project for City of Culture involves installing custom instruments in the disused kiosk at People's Park, Limerick. These long tube string devices are servo-controlled, hooked up to both an inductance keyboard for input, and a computer for MIDI recording and playback.
Ed invited several artists to work with him for a week a piece, crafting something special for his instruments. I prepared two pieces. The first was a short theme by way of a MIDI sequence.
The second was an improvised drone, which echoed out into the streets in a haunting fashion. You can hear this live recording below.
A big thanks to Ed Devane for sharing his work with me. Thanks to Susannah Kelly for photography.
