As part of the St. Patty’s day festival in Dublin, Kormac will be playing with the Irish Chamber Orchestra. This sounds fun by itself, but he’ll also have a number of special guests playing with him such as Loah and Eimear Noone. These genre hopping events can be a lot of fun and we expect no less from this event in Vicar street on Sunday the 18th of March. You can see the full details below, but tickets are available for €24.90 plus fees here.
With Leading Irish producer, DJ and composer Kormac, The Irish Chamber Orchestra and His Special Guests
Kormac: Equivalent Exchange’s creative concept is a new departure for Kormac. He has relinquished the writing and creative processes he has practiced over the last few years to try a completely new approach, embracing his new orchestral training to discover a whole new way of working, with a chamber orchestra at his fingertips and a new sonic palette to explore.
Speaking about Kormac: Equivalent Exchange, Kormac said: “The principle of Equivalent Exchange states that in order to gain something new you must first sacrifice something of equal value. I’ve applied this to my own writing process, forgoing my usual way of working but also in how I’m working with the artists I’m collaborating with for the show, bringing them songs and ideas at an earlier stage than I normally would. In this way, I’m giving up my usual level of control over the songwriting, allowing the collaboration to develop something completely new. It has also been a dream of mine for years to write an album’s worth of material for an orchestra and I’m so delighted I’ve been given the opportunity to actually do it. I’ve been working on this for the last 18 months and can’t wait to perform the full show with the Irish Chamber Orchestra, my big band and so many of the country’s leading vocalists, musicians and artists at St. Patrick’s Festival 2018.”
Already confirmed to collaborate with Kormac is Irish / Sierra Leonean artist Loah and award winning composer and conductor Eimear Noone. Loah is known for her unique blend of genre-bending Afro-soul which she calls ArtSoul. She has sold out numerous headline shows in Dublin and abroad, and appeared at festivals including Electric Picnic, Body&Soul and Longitude, to name but a few; while Eimear Noone has been called the “Irish Queen of Games Music” and has created music for World of Warcraft, Zelda, Metal Gear Solid and many more.
