Piece by Piece #4: Cormac McCarthy
Piece by Piece: Cormac McCarthy
Friday 1st May, 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, streaming each Friday at 8pm.
Moving into May with the 4th concert in the series, composer, pianist and arranger Cormac McCarthy brings to bear a background across traditional, jazz, and classical music in his music. An individualistic use of Irish traditional tunes in a jazz idiom along with sweepingly cinematic textures marries genres which are seldom brought together successfully.
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 8th May: Cora Venus Lunny
