These locations (UCC Quadrangle, Mardyke Bridge and Shandon Bells) will host newly-composed, site-specific pieces for percussion that take advantage of the unique acoustics of each place.
Each of the three pieces has been created especially for the place in which it is to be performed. Beats at the quadrangle in UCC will explore the echoes and reverberation of the university’s historic quadrangle,Bridges will use the Mardyke Bridge itself as a percussion instrument andBells will feature a duet between Alex at ground level and the unique bells of St Anne’s Church bell tower played by Brian O’Regan.
