Improvised Music Company (IMC) in partnership with Moving on Music (MOM) and in association with the Irish Film Institute (IFI) presents a trio of new improvisatory musical works on film.
In 2020, IMC and MOM launched a BAN BAM commission for female and gender-minority artists across Ireland. The selected composers – Úna Monaghan, Sue Rynhart, & C.V. Lunny – wrote new works which developed into site-specific filmed experiences.
Úna Monaghan’s work ‘And the Goals will Come’, for harp, bassoon, percussion and hurler comes to life in Co. Kilkenny, where the love of hurling is a tangible presence. C.V. Lunny’s work ‘currents’ explores the push and pull of emotion, electricity, water, and their interaction – against the background of the former Pigeon House power plant, Poolbeg. From Smock Alley Theatre, the weight of history and literature saturates Sue Rynhart’s piece, based on Charlotte Perkins-Gilman’s ‘The Yellow Wallpaper’.
