Made on Mondays Dublin
The second night of intriguing triple headers for Made on Mondays 2008, the second edition of our annual audit of new directions on the Dublin jazz and contemporary music scene. Bold explorations, freshly minted compositions and new instrumental line ups are waiting for adventurous ears in Dublin's most convivial and intimate venue for grown up listening, JJ Smyth's of Aungier Street. Six new projects showcase at this years MoM, in a broad stylistic church that embraces all points from folk music to electronica...
Bassist Dave Redmond has a wealth of material written over the last few years, none of which has had a performance airing until now, and a quintet of the city's finest will be putting it through its paces for Made on Mondays, among them keyboard wiz Justin Carroll. Slow, and slower again is the order of the day with a new trio project from drummer Sean Carpio that uses graphic scores and probes textural potential in acoustic instruments through alternative mic'ing, while the non-aligned Electronic Sensoria Band join forces with moonlighting members of Cap Pas Cap to probe all points from free jazz to krautrock.
