Monday July 20

Wild Beasts and more announced for
Sounds from a Safe Harbour Festival

Sounds from a Safe Harbour

A festival of music, art and conversation presented by Cork Opera House and curated by Bryce Dessner (The National)

September 17 - 20
Cork

Wild Beasts are set to join a huge array of Irish and international artists performing during Bryce Dessner’s Sounds from a Safe Harbour Festival, taking place citywide across Cork this September 17 - 20. They join fellow headliners The Gloaming, Aaron Dessner and Lisa Hannigan, Bryce Dessner, Richard Reed Parry (Arcade Fire) and the RTE National Symphony Orchestra and many more during the four day long themed festival, celebrating the port city’s rich cultural history. Wild Beasts will headline Cork Opera House on Sunday, September 20.

Other new inclusions on a growing festival programme include a Music Trail curated by new Irish music writer and blogger, Nialler9. Hosted across Cork in Benny McCabe's venues, supported by Rising Sons Brewery, the trail will include some great contemporary Irish artists such as Slow Skies, I Am The Cosmos, Somerville, Bantum, Talos, Shookrah, Conor Walsh and Vinyl Love.

Another exciting addition to the festival is ‘Soundings from a Safe Harbour’. The show happens in three sections - the first is stories to inspire, then stories to alarm, and finally stories to humour. Each section is bridged by a song on those themes. For Soundings from a Safe Harbour Dylan Haskins and Lisa Hannigan will welcome guests and siblings Bryce, Aaron and Jessica Dessner in the unique setting of a Bonded Warehouse down on the Port of Cork,

On the culinary side of the programme, celebrated Cork chef Rocketman is set to host a foodie haven in Port of Cork’s iconic Bonded Warehouse. One of the city’s most historic buildings, Bonded Warehouse 8 will be transformed into ‘BAIT’, showcasing some of Cork’s finest culinary delights and will be the home of a special festival dining experience over the weekend - details of which will appear on line over the next from weeks. Cork’s Fab Food Trails will also bring festival goers off the beaten track to discover some of the city’s hidden foodie gems. Advance booking strongly advised for both of these events.

The Glucksman is honoured to present a week long exhibition of the mesmerising seascapes of renowned Japanese artist Hiroshi Sugimoto. The exhibition will take place in one of the interior chambers of the historic observatory on the UCC Campus, evoking the connection between tide and moon, sea and stars. A long time collaborator of Bryce Dessner’s, Matthew Ritchie will also feature in the Glucksman’s Boolean Expressions exhibition. We are particularly thrilled to announce the screening of Ritchie’s 'Monstrance', which is scored by Bryce Dessner and features Shara Worden (My Brightest Diamond).

As originally promised, Sounds from a Safe Harbour will take to the water, with the ‘Sail to Sirius’ taking place midday Saturday 19 September. A vessel will leave Port of Cork with 40 souls, bound for Sirius Arts Centre in Cobh. On board, the seafarers will be treated to a live performance by Landless before alighting at Sirius for lunch on the venue’s veranda, overlooking Cork Harbour. This will be followed with a double billed performance by Rainwear and Sirius Arts Centre’s artist in residence Nad Spiro.

Cork’s own Alex Petcu-Colan will present a percussion programme in CIT School of Music’s Curtis Auditorium with a programme entitled WoodMetalWater with the Bangers and Crash Percussion group. WoodMetalWater is a highly engaging concert that will take the audience on a journey through the sounds of Cork City Harbour. The programme is comprised of works by Steve Reich, Louis Andriessen, Tan Dun and Donnacha Dennehy and will be performed using sounds derived from wood, metal and water as sources.

Sounds from a Safe Harbour is also delighted to have Craig Carry of Fractured Air team up with Filter Cafe for an exhibition of work created in response to the festival programme, in addition we are delighted to welcome Cork Concert Orchestra and the Lords of Strut who will join a line up that features a diverse array of shipmates including This is the Kit, Mina Tindle, Amiina, James McVinnie, My Brightest Diamond, Donal Dineen, Eat My Noise, Ailbhe ni Bhrian, Nadia Sirota,Valgeir Sigurðsson, Linda and Irene Buckley, Ragnar Kjartansson, Kjartan Sveinsson, Skúli Sverrisson, Julianna Barwick and more.

There are small number of festival tickets still left for Sounds from a Safe Harbour, and tickets for individual performances across the weekend are available on the festival website www.soundsfromasafeharbour.com. To encourage as many people to participate in Sounds from a Safe Harbour as possible, many of the events during the festival are free entry, details of which can be found on the website.

this is also part of Sounds from a Safe Harbour . . .


Playing Your Heart Out

September 18
Aula Maxima
UCC
Cork

“A future fire will roar a glorious shout –
For now, Spiros, softly plays his heart out"

- Prof Ken O Halloran, from 'Heart and Breath'

Science and music embrace one another as some of the world's most celebrated musicians and composers come face-to-face with the finest minds in neuroscience and physiology at ‘Playing Your Heart Out’ – a performance and symposium taking place in the Aula Maxima, as part of the Sounds from a Safe Harbour festival.

This unique event is centred around Richard Reed Parry’s (Arcade Fire) ‘Duet for Heart and Breath’ – a piece dictated by the individual performers own heartbeat and breath, which requires the performers to wear stethoscopes. Performed by Parry along with internationally acclaimed Nadia Sirota, the piece will be followed by a discussion headed by UCC’s Chair of Neuroscience and Anatomy Dept. Prof John Cryan, Head of the School of Biological, Earth and Environmental Sciences Prof Ken O' Halloran, and the illustrious classical conductor Andre De Ridder.

This merging of science and music, exploring the physical effects of this compositional technique has on both the performer and the music itself, is a first for both fields according to Prof Cryan “To our knowledge, it has never been juxtaposed with a science context, and will be very exciting”.

The free event takes place on Friday 18th September at 1pm and is once in a lifetime chance to experience the top practitioners from diverse disciplines begin the conversation, exploring the symbiotic relationship between music, mind and body.
