‘Quiet’ means both hushed and peaceful: Quiet Music Ensemble’s music is expansive, beautiful, immersive and transcendental; about being in the moment, about sound that is purely itself. Using a combination of prepared materials and improvisation, its performances are unique, each one conjuring a new world of surprising textures and sounds.
Quiet Music Ensemble was formed in 2008 in Cork; it has performed in Ireland, the UK and Germany, has been broadcast in Europe and America, has appeared live on RTÉ Lyric FM twice, and recently released its first CD, ‘The Mysteries Beyond Matter’, on Farpoint Recordings.
The ensemble is: Seán Mac Erlaine (clarinets); Roddy O’Keeffe (trombone); John Godfrey (electric guitar); Ilse De Ziah (cello, tin can); and Dan Bodwell (double bass, turkey baster).
“In these deafening times, the very notion of ‘quiet music’ is a revolutionary act, a mesmeric power”
