Heralded as a ‘supergroup within new music circles in Ireland’ by Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, Stone Drawn Circles inhabits a new space in Irish contemporary music. In this late-night performance at NMD, the ensemble investigates new modes of communication, collaborative dynamics and shifting paradigms.

In spite of their relatively short existence as a group, Stone Drawn Circle’s debut performance season includes appearances at several prestigious festivals, and a PRS Beyond Borders tour of the UK. The ensemble believes in rich composer/performer dialogues and in the bending of traditional performance dynamics, which is evident in this launch-season offering—a trip through various genres and forms of contemporary sound art, performed by some of Ireland’s leading contemporary players.


Brian Irvine's new work was commissioned by the Contemporary Music Centre for Stone Drawn Circles with funds from PRS Foundation Beyond Borders funding.

Stone Drawn Circles are supported by the Arts Council of Ireland.

In Formation and Landay Sequenzas were created with the financial assistance of a Commission Award, funded by the Arts Council/An Chomhaírle Ealaíon.

Stone Drawn Circles: In Formation tour is project-managed by the Contemporary Music Centre, Ireland, supported by PRS Foundation Beyond Borders funding.
