The sixth concert in the series welcomes Dublin based sound artist Rachel Ní Chuinn. Austrian sound artist Mia Zabelka will also be performing.
Rachel Ní Chuinn
Rachel Ní Chuinn works with sound, movement, text and electronics to explore ideas of touch and physicality. She studied photography with Karl Grimes at DCU before going on to Central Saint Martin's College of Art and Design. In 2012, she graduated with first class honours from an MPhil in Music and Media Technologies, Trinity College Dublin where she studied composition with Donnacha Dennehy and Linda Buckley.
She has produced sound works for radio, live performance and installation. As a performer and co-director of the Dublin Laptop Orchestra, she has played with the National Symphony Orchestra, Crash Ensemble, Yurodny and This Is How We Fly. Her work has been performed at Sonic Vigil (Cork), The Goethe Institut, Axis Ballymun, Project Arts Centre, Smock Alley Theatre, the Samuel Beckett theatre, Articule (Montreal), Kulturhuset (Stockholm), White Rabbit (Nova Scotia) and the Dublin Fringe Festival amongst others.
Recent works include the radio feature The Shape of Things to Come for RTÉ lyric fm, Extremely Brief Impressions with Vanya Lambrecht Ward for the Platform Arts Centre, live radio project Mean Time at Richmond Barracks and sound and light performance Mare Tenebrosum with Renata Pekowska as part of Project Arts Centre’s Cube development programme. She is currently working on a musical audio tour of the solar system with sculptor Gillian Fitzpatrick. She also hosts weekly music radio show Cluastuiscint on Raidió na Life.
Mia Zabelka is a sound artist, composer as well as an amazing experimental violinist and vocalist from Vienna, with czech, jewish and french familiar background. Comprehensively educated in classical music from early age on, she continued to construct and explore the limits of sound and music in a language entirely her own, based on the de- and reconstruction of the violin’s sonic possibilities, expanding the range of the instrument using live electronic devices, preparing it through the insertion of alien objects between or on the strings and innovative performance techniques.

Centrifuge brings together an exciting collection of improvising musicians based across the North and Midlands. Coming from a wide spectrum of musical backgrounds, and working within different musical practices, they will combine in various small groupings to deliver a program of freely improvised music.
Since an inaugural meeting in October 2008 Centrifuge has been organising concerts, workshops, and festival appearances, featuring many leading improvisers based north of the capital. The locations have included; Manchester, Leeds, Birmingham, Huddersfield, Lancaster, and Crewe. There have been fifty events.

April 5th 2008 3.00 pm - 4.00 pm Picton Reading Room, Liverpool Central Library.
The venue is a whispering gallery, as can be heard.
Try listening with headphones.
The ticking of the clock, some 10 metres away from the microphone is present throughout.
This clip is a bit long, but there are some standout moments of beauty in hear, the performance follows its title, or am I just being nostalgic?
