An honest, human and emotive response for now and the future.
Amidst the onset of the global pandemic, Crash Ensemble commissioned Irish & International composers from a range of musical backgrounds to write new works for duos within the group
Building on existing collaborative partnerships and cultivating and nurturing new relationships, composers were invited to create a musical response to their experiences, the current state and their thoughts for the future.
Each composer documented their creative process with text and imagery, offering a fly on the wall view of the composers’ studio spaces, visual imagery and text journaling during the creative process. The duos were recorded and filmed and this audio visual material was combined to make an accompanying film by Crash’s resident filmmaker, Laura Sheeran.
These films will be shown for the duration of the festival, in the foyer of the National Concert Hall.
