Improvised Music Company have announced a new festival for fans of creative music-making called SPECTRUM in association with Note Productions and Homebeat.
It will take place from 10-12th March between Whelan’s and the Opium Rooms. Full details are here.
The programme is a diverse offering from these three promoters who all operate on the peripheries of modern music.
Three days of free and ticketed SPECTRUM live concerts, talks (SPECTRUM speaks) to set the context, as well as a late-night SPECTRUM club of live electronic music curated by Homebeat.
On the bill is a high quality selection of music that flows through the prism of the live and improvised jazz approach; its output a miscellany of sound, covering a full spectrum through jazz, progressive, rock, alt-folk to electronica.
Saturday night is the big night at SPECTRUM kicking off with a double-header. This will be a treat for Irish audiences, with the cinematic sounds of Belgian instrumental trio Dans Dans, followed by the raw punk energy of Norway’s Hedvig Mollestad Trio. Then from 11pm til late, Homebeat present SPECTRUM club, a hand picked celebration of the beautiful frayed edges of LIVE contemporary Irish electronica featuring the ethereal ambience of Dublin producer Kobina’s glitchy soundscapes, going right through to the vital live vocals and driving synth of White Collar Boy’s pop electronica in Whelan’s upstairs.
