Great showcase of new Irish music featuring four genre-defying artists from Cork.
Declan Synnott is a Cork based electronic musician . He plays in several bands including Síoraí Geimhreadh, Bodycam and Power Acoustics. Solo, his music is based around synthesised and accidental sound, it is generally generous with low end and moves at as slow a pace as possible. His most recent album, Everything Lost in the Image was released by Krim Kram (https://krimkram.com/) November 2022
Michelle Doyle is a musician and visual artist, making work under the moniker, Rising Damp. In 2020, she developed this project into a live band with drummer Sarah Grimes and synth musician Ivan Pawle. They have played TBGS, Electric Picnic and Feile na Greine. She plays solo under this title, in shows often improvised in nature. She also plays in bands Dreamgirls, the Healers, Bodycam and previously, feminist punk band Sissy.
Doyle recently screened new film work, Super Gairdín, with collaborator Cóilín O’Connell in Pallas Projects Dublin (2022), along with her film “Living truthfully under imaginary circumstances” (2023) screened through Mirror Lamp Press. Recent works have been included as part of Oh My Demigod (2022) in TBGS, “How Will You Look After Me?” In Woman and the Machine (2021) in Carlow Visual, with artists Eva Richardson McCrea and Coilin O'Connell. The trio makes work under Yoga For The Eyes and has had their film work featured in AEMI's touring programme Signals & Circuits. As a musician, Michelle has played live in Berghain, IMMA, Electric Picnic and Open Ear Festival. At present, Michelle has a studio residency in Fire Station Studios in Dublin and is supported by the Arts Council of Ireland.
Gadget and the Cloud is Kelly Doherty, a producer and DJ from Cork. With two releases under her belt and high praise from the likes of RTE 2FM, The 405 and more, Gadget and the Cloud has played festivals including Electric Picnic, Sounds From A Safe Harbour, Open Ear and Body & Soul and has been on support duties for Negative Gemini, Gus Dapperton, Saint Sister and Dan Deacon.
Gadget and the Cloud’s live sets are a combination of ambient, introspective electronic and upbeat synth based dance moments while her DJ sets bring together hip-hop, drum & bass, experimental, pop and more. She is a co-founder of Satellite Towns club night and has a monthly show on Threads Radio.
Eamon Ivri is a musician, artist, and event organizer based in Cork. They work under a variety of monikers, including Lighght and Mineral Stunting. A purveyor of gulch ambient, their most recent album as Mineral Stunting ‘Ambling Construct’ sees them stutter through rough, weary terrain, sounding out every step. Expect a squidgy blob of noise and dub - smoke over a bog, with a light shining through.
