FUAIM Lecture: John Godfrey, “we return to ground”. Ó Riada Hall, Music Department, UCC. Thursday, 23 March, 11am-1pm

23 Mar 2023

John Godfrey discusses Karen Power’s works ‘we return to ground’, 'Sonic Pollinators' and 'Instruments of Ice', composed for Quiet Music Ensemble, of which John is the director. The ensemble is dedicated to an aesthetic in which sound is less seen as something to organise and more as something to explore. Power’s works are created from field recordings made all over the world; QME engages with these recordings to produce a soundscape in which natural and performed sounds blend to create a living, constantly changing sonic kaleidoscope. The talk will include the world’s first chance to hear QME’s recent studio recordings of these pieces, due to be released on Other Minds later this year.
