Quiet Music Ensemble Live on RTE
On Sunday night next (17 Oct), the Quiet Music Ensemble and composer David Toop will make a live appearance on RTÉ Lyric’s NOVA.
The QME and Toop will improvise and perform his specially- commissioned piece night leaves breathing; Toop will read from his new book Sinister Resonance; and host Bernard Clarke will talk with
Toop and the QME about their experimental and improvised music.
Tune in between 9 and 10 pm or listen online. The Quiet Music Ensemble is a Cork-based Experimental music group launched in 2008 and led by composer and performer John Godfrey. The QME is dedicated to music that invites deep attention; music that is immersive, reflective, and introspective; music that is an experimentation with, and meditation on, sound itself.
Since 2008, Qme has worked with, and commissioned, many of the world’s leading figures in Experimental music and Sound Art, promoted Ireland’s only international festival of Experimental music, presented several prestigious performances, worked with prominent irish traditional musicians and visual artists and continues to develop unique and extraordinary ideas.
