Hunt Museum

Culture Night – Sound and Vision

David Bowie: 1977

Don’t you wonder sometimes
About sound and vision?
Blue, blue, electric blue
That’s the colour of my room
Where I will live
Blue, blue
Pale blinds drawn all day
Nothing to do, nothing to say
Blue, blue
I will sit right down
Waiting for the gift of sound and vision
And I will sing
Waiting for the gift of sound and vision
Drifting into my solitude
Over my head
Don’t you wonder sometimes
About sound and vision?
A night of Sound and Vision

Sound & Vision – Culture Night at the Hunt Museum

Sound
Lorcan’s broadcasts Classic Drive live with guests from the Hunt Museum Study Room, under the gaze of St Lucia and Sean Keating, among a few of the amazing objects. Cultural sounds for your ears while you immerse yourself in visions of the future with Robots and AI from Confirm mixed in with Apollo dancing using AR, Riding a Flying Fish or two if you missed it last year, or playing the Truffles – the Three Muses Game of Limerick. The Captains Room is then taken over by the Limerick New Music Ensemble for the rest of the evening, while the Polish Arts Festival have a moving theatre performance with Simon Thompson starting in the Courtyard. Meanwhile Cross Connect is being conducted by Gorm Media and Guests in the Garden Gallery.

Lorcan Murray’s Classic Drive – The perfect music soundtrack including some sounds from the Limerick and County Youth Theatres who created a Gregorian Chant using the Medieval Handbells recorded by Eoin Callery of the University of Limerick and some classic Limerick phrases such as Aboy the Kid and Chicken Hut Gravy is unreal.

And Vision
Peek into robotics and the how of Artificial Intelligence, sensors, virtual reality, the Internet of Things that the Hunt Museum is using or considering using to make the museum objects come alive. A vision of the future is presented by CONFIRM, the Science Foundation Ireland funded research centre for smart manufacturing based in UL. Looking to inform and educate society about new and emerging technologies and have some discussion and debate around their impacts on our society and our culture. Researchers and staff from CONFIRM are holding a drop-in session, giving everyone the chance to learn about and play with technologies such as robotics, internet of things, sensors and more! Also for playing is Truffles the Treasure Hunting Pig. A brand new Limerick game produced by 5 students from South East Technological University in Carlow, using objects from the Limerick City Gallery of Art, the Limerick City Museum and the Hunt Museum ages 7 and up! And our favourite god.. Apollo… is boogieing in his Alternative Reality form alongside a chance to revisit Ride a Flying Fish using our VR Headsets.

ROCKING is an interdisciplinary performance-made-for-film in a creative collaboration between Early Music and Contemporary Dance. This project explores lamentation, love and loss through a feminist lens and is inspired by the music and text of Tarquinio Merula’s sacred lullaby “Canzonetta spirituale sopra alla nanna”, featuring Yonit Kosovske (harpsichord & artistic direction), Aisling Kenny (soprano), Sarah Groser (viola da gamba), and Isabella Oberländer (dance & choreography).
