GROOVE THEORY

What happens when you mix baroque with rock, blues and folk?  The answer is a lunch hour filled with swinging rhythms and jazzy toe-tapping riffs!Enjoy a very different view of the Irish Baroque Orchestra this autumn as they team up with jazz drummer Kevin Brady to present the first Irish performances of Groove Theory.

Composed by jazz violinist Hollis Taylor (USA), Groove Theory was Inspired by the scientific notion of String Theory,  which is one way of explaining the existence of our universe,  Through her music, Hollis creates her own “theory of everything”, in which all music must swing and dance, sway, pulse and groove.

And indeed it does.  Uplifting and imaginative, this colourful music is quite simply….groovy!

This event includes a talk on music, science and all things baroque, with Monica Huggett, artistic director of the IBO and Grammy nominee, and special guests.

“Wow! What a knockout of a piece! I enjoyed every delicious second.”
-David Schiff, composer/music critic, Portland USA

Celebrating 20 Years in the Big Blue Building

Exactly 20 years ago the new purpose-built premises of Project Arts Centre reopened amidst huge expectations and speculations on its capacities to live up to its artist-led ethos and continue its creative path dedicated to experimentation and radical practices.

Some of us have to stay indoors all the time. Others mostly all of the time. We've had letters and postcards through our letterboxes that made us smile.
