Quiet Music Ensemble – The Expanded Instruments Project

Performance | Saturday 9 November

Quiet Music Ensemble is a Cork-based Experimental Music group led by composer and performer John Godfrey. The word ‘quiet’ in its name is intended to conjure both the sense of hushed and of peaceful; its music is a restrained meditation on sound itself.

The group consists of musicians from various musical roots, and draws its repertoire from diverse artistic sources, including composers of music, sound artists and visual artists. Free and guided improvisation is a central aspect of QME’s practice, as is interaction with pre-recorded and live electronics. It performs in unconventional spaces and contexts, and specialises in extended performances.

Venue: Sonic Lab, Sonic Arts Research Centre, 4 Cloreen Park, Belfast BT9 
Booking info: Free – all are welcome
