The Model

Species Counterpoint

The Model presents the premiere of a new work by composer Ian Wilson “Species Counterpoint”. The project involves the creation of a 25 minute soundtrack which will take its inspiration from, and be an exploration of, animal and plant species under threat of extinction in County Sligo because of the effects of climate change. Interviews undertaken with local people regarding causes of species extinction, fragments of the interviews will then form part of a soundtrack which will also include field recordings and some recorded musical elements from the soloists. In addition to this, a score will be created for two musicians, Dutch saxophonist Ties Mellema and Sligo based saxophonist Cathal Roche. This project is in collaboration with Creative Sligo.

The Whispering Gallery sound installation by Cathal Roche will be performed from 7:30 – 8.30pm.
