NEW FAITH LOVE SONG

This sounds so cool and if you are in Dublin this evening you can hear this performance between 9-9.25pm, (it is recommended that the listening location for the sound work is between the two cathedrals on Nicholas Street).

"NEW FAITH LOVE SONG by Garrett Phelan comprises an ambitious off-site live performance sound work which will culminate into an exhibition of sound, photography, drawing, sculpture and animation in the New Galleries at IMMA.

The live performance sound work involves the bell-ringers of both Christ Church Cathedral and St Patrick’s Cathedral in Dublin city centre, which can be heard from 9.00 to 9.25pm on Thursday, 21 June. It is recommended that the listening location for the sound work is between the two cathedrals on Nicholas Street.

For the sound piece, Phelan will work with the bells of the cathedrals to create a live conversation between these two iconic religious monuments.  The bell-ringing dialogue will act as a declaration pronouncing the arrival of ‘New Faith’.  This proclamation of ‘New Faith’ is inspired by a loss of faith and the consequential intermediary period of faithlessness, leading to the reconstruction and manifestation of ‘New Faith’.  This new work symbolises the realisation of ‘New Faith’ and culminates in a ‘bell-ringing’ celebration that evokes the optimism that can stem from the inexplicable." http://www.imma.ie/
