Piece by Piece #2: Nick Roth & Olesya Zdorovetska
Piece by Piece: Nick Roth & Olesya Zdorovetska
Friday 17th 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, streaming each Friday at 8pm.
The second creation in the series comes from multi-talented and erudite couple, saxophonist/composer/producer Nick Roth and vocalist/photographer/composer Olesya Zdorovetska. The pair have been involved together in some of the most exciting projects in experimental music over the last number of years, with flavours of improvisatory, jazz, and folk musics, including Yurodny, The Water Project, and Sefiroth.
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 24th April: Seán MacErlaine
