Piece by Piece: Shane Latimer
Friday 10th April, 8pm
Streaming on IMC's Youtube channel
IMC and Triskel are coming together to host a weekly sequence of online solo performances featuring leading Irish improvisers beginning on Friday 10th April at 8pm.
The series begins with a performance from Shane Latimer. Between curating the famed Bottlenote Festival and lecturing on DCU’s jazz degree, experimental musician Shane Latimer plays, composes and improvises on the six-, seven- and eight-string guitar. His music occupies that fertile space between nature and technology, using software and electronic processing to harvest the shimmering sounds of his guitar.
In the Piece by Piece series, each artist’s input performance will influence or inspire the next performance in this musical chain. Piece by piece, artists will create new improvised work, based on the preceding work. Improvising musicians are uniquely skilled at interpretation and spontaneous creation allowing for fresh creation of the highest calibre.
Enjoy fresh new music, influenced in real-time, from world-class Irish improvising musicians, telling the story of these strange times through new music and live performance, piece by piece.
Piece by Piece is an exciting new initiative from IMC and Triskel Arts Centre, which brings an entirely new meaning to the term ‘online influencer’.
IMC and Triskel are committed to continuing to employ artists and engage audiences, particularly during these challenging times.
Next week, Friday 17th April: Nick Roth & Olesya Zdorovetska
