Kind Words Spoken

Seán Mac Erlaine Album Launch

Dates: 06 Apr - 06 Apr

Show Time: 7.30pm

Tickets: €14 - €16

The new album launch from leading Irish musician Seán Mac Erlaine (clarinets, electronics) with Norwegian trailblazers Eivind Aarset (guitars) and live sampling pioneer Jan Bang.

Following the critical acclaim of his first two solo records Seán is working with two of the leading lights in contemporary music, broadening his soundworld and embracing a collaborative approach. Norwegian musicians Eivind Aarset on guitars and effects and live sampling pioneer Jan Bang bring an expansive, detailed palette to this work recorded in Oslo, which also features the stunning vocals of Irish singer Sadhbh Ní Dhalaigh.

Music for Empty Ears is an album that shifts constantly between dark, brooding electronics and light-filled moments, playing with this balance. Mac Erlaine’s individual voice on woodwinds combines seamlessly with his nuanced understanding of live electronics, meeting the signature Norwegian sound world of Bang and Aarset.
