OMNIPRESENT: THE CENTRE FOR DYING ON STAGE #1

Dates: 31 Jul - 31 Jul

Show Time: 6.00pm - 8.00pm

Karl Burke

This is a free event and you are all very welcome to attend. No booking is required.

On this evening, artist and musician Karl Burke will present his spatial sound piece Omnipresent. Originally conceived as the soundtrack to the play The Maids, the piece is recomposed here as a site specific sculptural installation using sound as its main medium. Operating at a frequency from 20 Hz to 40 Hz, the sound propagates spatially in a very particular manner, forming static physical clusters of intense sound with areas of silence throughout the space of the gallery.  Whiskey Sours will be served to accompany the piece, available from the foyer bar for €5.

This event is running as part of the exhibition The Centre For Dying On Stage #1, curated by Kate Strain. Every Thursday a recurring Dive Bar will transform the gallery into an informal social space for performance, exchange and encounter.
