Heralded as a “supergroup within new music circles in Ireland” by Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, Stone Drawn Circles inhabits a new space in Irish contemporary music. In their relatively short existence as a group, the ensemble’s debut performance season includes performances at prestigious festivals including HCMF, New Music Dublin and a PRS Beyond Borders tour of the UK. The players believe in rich composer/performer dialogues and in the bending of traditional performance dynamics, which is evident in their debut season offering. Breathing life into four new works, the ensemble explores new modes of communication – between themselves as a collective and their audiences.

Responding to the environments that they find themselves in, a form of sonic activism takes place through works by Cat Hope and Brian Irvine, bringing to the spotlight the voices of Afghan women and corporate greed. Stone Drawn Circles musician Úna Monaghan investigates collaborative dynamics and shifting paradigms. “Brilliant musical scientist” Nicole Lizée offers a slice of her unique compositional language. The programme navigates through various genres and forms of contemporary sound art, performed by some of Ireland’s leading contemporary players.
