Curious ears are encouraged to join Crash Ensemble for this performance of five world premieres marking the culmination of Crash Works: a two-year commission and development hub for composers offered by the ensemble in partnership with New Music Dublin.

Those who attended NMD 2022 may have been lucky enough to witness our unique open session that explored preliminary musical sketches by Crash Works composers Laura Hyland, Anselm McDonnell, Úna Monaghan, Amy Rooney and Yue Song—and this year their hard work comes to fruition in a fascinating programme inspired by everything from sleep patterns to the natural environment, climbing, auditory systems, parallel happenings and the frequency of instruments in printed word.

Commissioned by Crash Ensemble and New Music Dublin with funds from the Arts Council of Ireland.
