Six newly-commissioned music and film works, screening throughout hcmf// 2022
As part of Ulysses Journey 2022 celebrating the 100th anniversary of the publication of Ulysses by James Joyce, Contemporary Music Centre, Ireland and Centre Culturel Irlandais co-commissioned six new works by composers from Ireland, which are inspired by, reflect on and/or respond to Ulysses, together with films by filmmakers from Ireland to accompany these new works.
Composers Ed Bennett, Darragh Kelly, Garth Knox, Anselm McDonnell, Ailís Ní Ríain and Ultan O’Brien were selected to compose new works for accordion, spoken word and/or electronics and to collaborate with filmmakers Jonathan Creasy (Knox), Rioghnach Ni Ghrioghair (Kelly), Laura Sheeran (Bennett) and Ross Wilson BEM/Art Ward (McDonnell) to create visual landscapes for their new music. Both Ailís Ní Ríain and Ultan O’Brien have created films to accompany their own compositions.
These new music and film works are supported by the Irish Government through the Department of Foreign Affairs and the Decade of Centenaries 2012-2023 programme; New Music Dublin 2022; and One Dublin One Book 2022.
