As the quiet crow flies
The Quiet Club and crOw, two of Ireland’s most innovative improvising duos, are touring together as a quartet for the first time. Supported by the Arts Council Touring and Dissemination of Work Scheme, Ormston House is delighted to host As the quiet crow flies, a one-off performance in partnership with the Digital Media and Arts Research Centre.
The Quiet Club is an internationally-acclaimed duo consisting of Danny McCarthy and Mick O’Shea, who use a range of analogue and digital electronic devices to produce sound art of great beauty and subtlety. crOw is an improvising duo incorporating saxophonist Cathal Roche and Ian Wilson on laptop, e-guitar and sound objects – this duo has a particular interest in spatializing sound and responding to acoustic and architectural properties of the spaces it performs in; audiences are invited to wander around during performances. When the two duos perform together, the result is a unique combination of influences and approaches; naturally, every tour performance will be different and tailored to a particular venue and audience.
