New!  Orpheus Down, the new CD & DL by Ian Wilson - available now from the Farpoint Recordings webshop

Orpheus Down consists of ten movements, each relating to a specific part of Orpheus’ journey. The CD features detailed liner notes by Ian Wilson alongside images by photographer Doreen Kennedy. 

 

Orpheus Down makes much use of extended playing techniques, controlled improvisation, and the vast experience of the two marvellous performers. The music seeks the emotional heart of each scene but at the same time embraces painting pictures and evoking atmospheres – indeed, could almost be seen as a series of studies in colour and sonority. Through the aggregation of dark hues, emotional gestures and narrative signposts a journey results, echoing that of Orpheus in some elemental way.

 

CD copies of Orpheus Down available here

Sonic Hauntings cover.jpg

 

New! Sonic Hauntings in a Big House, the new digital album by sound artist Joseph Young is available now from the Farpoint Recordings Bandcamp shop 

 

Sonic Hauntings in a Big House will be launched during a special event at The Orangery, Killruddery House, Co. Wicklow, 5.30pm Thursday 4th April, 2024

 

Sonic Hauntings in a Big House, the new digital album by sound artist Joseph Young emerged out of a practice-based PhD research project, Killruddery: Listening to the Archive (2019-23). In his debut album for Farpoint Recordings, sound artist Joseph Young summons the rich and complex histories of the Big House in Ireland through field recordings, voice(s) and retro-futuristic sonic layering. Through exploring the extensive family archive held at Bray’s Killruddery House & Gardens, Young devised both a geolocated soundscape in Killruddery’s grounds and this accompanying record, which further proposes a spectral glimpse of a lost past. The digital album will be available from our Bandcamp shop. The physical vinyl LP version of this album will be released by Farpoint Recordings later in 2024. 

 

- Also launching during this event - 

Mapping The Ancestors is a new limited edition artwork designed by the award winning Or Studio in collaboration with artist Joseph Young, to accompany Young’s site-specific sound work, The Ancestors. Made as part of Young’s PhD research, The Ancestors draws on the rich private archive held at Killruddery House and Gardens, where historical estate papers sit alongside personal diaries and letters. At this special launch reception, Young and Killruddery's archivist Xenia Meath will discuss the significance of this fascinating repository and lead a short tour of The Ancestors ‘sound walk’ and the archive itself. 

 

The event is held at Killruddery House and Gardens’ beautiful Orangery, with a drinks reception courtesy of Killruddery Arts.

 

With thanks to Fionnuala Ardee, Xenia Meath (Killruddery House) and Anne Mullee (Mermaid Arts Centre)

Announcing vlz, a new CD by Victor Lazzarini available now from the Farpoint Recordings webshop

This album is, from many perspectives, a new departure for Victor Lazzarini. With it, he has rediscovered some of the music he has appreciated since his youth. It also marks a return to performance. As a pianist, synthesist, and keyboard player, he has played every single part that was recorded for each track of this collection. This allowed him to work through new compositions from an improvisation point of view, which is a practice he had not used for a long time. The title of the album somehow reflects this, as Lazzarini found a way of doing things that seemed to offer 
very low impedance in a metaphoric sense.

You can purchase your copy here

 

vlz will be launched at 7.30pm, 29th February at Riverstown Hall, Maynooth University, County Kildare with a short live performance by Victor Lazzarini. All are welcome to attend.

. . . 

From its opening with “Swash (theme)”, this album reveals its progressive air with that analogous sound of epic mood and evocative arpeggios of the Kosmische Musik, as well as the Medieval fanfare of “Passages”. The elegant melody of the piano phrases in “Swash (solo)” (and in several passages on the album) feel truly poignant, also showing off a cinematic character. Victor Lazzarini envelops us with his beautiful music with a dose of nostalgia that stirs our memories.

Your Location In Space by Phil Maguire - 12 - 6pm, Saturday 30 March, 2024

The Guesthouse, 10 Chapel Street, Cork, Ireland 

John Cage says that sound simply gets “louder and quieter...higher and lower...longer and shorter” in its activity. Phil Maguire is similarly fascinated by electronic sound being nothing other than itself; his work is solely an experience of sound. Your Location in Space is an environment in which he explores the possibility of his work creating an acoustic space, that affords the listener an opportunity to reflect within an enveloping sonic environment and be afloat in sound.

 

In the work of Phil Maguire, compositional energy is focused on the study of timbre of electronic sound: conventional musical concerns such as harmony, melody, or assumptions of the music being explicitly meaningful are not considerations. There are no backgrounds or foregrounds. It is similar to being enveloped by a mist: something you are within, rather than observe from outside. 

The installation includes audio material drawn from Phil's forthcoming album on Farpoint Recordings.

The project is supported by the Arts Council / An Chomhairle Ealíon.

New!  The Listening Group - The sonic as a representation of place

Co-curated by sound artists Joseph Young and Anthony Kelly (Farpoint Recordings)


2.00-3.30pm, Sunday 25th February 2024

Mermaid Arts Centre, Bray, County Wicklow

Mermaid Arts Centre’s new sound art Listening Group launches with this inaugural live listen event featuring an exclusive sneak preview of Joseph Young’s forthcoming album Sonic Hauntings in a Big House, drawn from his recent PhD research project The Ancestors. A digital version of the album will be released 4th April on the Farpoint Recordings label with the physical version following later during 2024.

 

Through exploring the extensive family archive held at Bray’s Killruddery House & Gardens, Young devised both a geolocated soundscape in Killruddery’s grounds and this accompanying record, which further proposes a spectral glimpse of a lost past. In keeping with this investigation of place through audio, the live listen will be followed by discussion led by Joseph and Anthony, interspersed with audio clips from artists who have influenced their practice including Aeron Bergman, Mark Fisher & Justin Barton, Danny McCarthy, The Caretaker, Janet Cardiff, Laurie Anderson, Drew Mullholland, Peter Cusack, Warrington-Runcorn New Town Development Plan, Cathy Lane, Pat Collins & Tadhg O'Sullivan, Chris Watson, Brian Harnetty, Ernest Hood, Dallas Simpson, Graeme Miller, Glenn Gould and Brian Eno.

Recent Release! Earth, Air, Water, Fire: A Poetry Soundscape - an ambitious new double CD

by Paul Kane & Katie O'Looney - available now from the Farpoint Recordings webshop

 

Paul Kane and Katie O'Looney present their ambitious collaborative double CD of composed soundscapes and poetry on the Farpoint Recordings label. Katie O’Looney’s soundscapes for Earth, Air, Water, Fire: A Poetry Soundscape are environmental in impulse and inspiration. The verse, while ‘philosophically serious’, is also ‘at times, witty and ludic in tone. Earth, Air, Water, Fire is an extended contemplation on not only the elements of our world—both outer and inner - but also on how that world is called into being and then lived most fully and skilfully. Similarly, the paintings of John Wolseley suggest an energetic spontaneity appropriate to a layering improvisation.

Physical release includes a double CD, 6 panel fold out ecopack with A4 size insert or poster option (let us know which you prefer); a digital version with full artwork pdf is available from the Farpoint Recordings Bandcamp outlet.

Steve Roden 1964 - 2023

 

Farpoint Recordings are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of our friend Steve Roden. We have been great admirers of his work and were delighted to collaborate with him during 2011 as part of the ongoing Strange Attractor project. Steve contributed sound and writing to the project and we were thrilled to have him as our guest performer at the Crawford Art Gallery, Cork, Ireland. We became friends over the years and it was our great pleasure to work with Steve developing and releasing the pcahuilcsaigmon album on Farpoint Recordings.

 

May Steve rest in peace. We offer our heartfelt condolences to his wife Sari, and his family and friends.

- New Release! -  Available now from the Farpoint Recordings webshop - 

Drinking The Stars - an ambitious double CD by John McLachlan

Mary Dullea plays the solo piano music of John McLachlan on a new double CD entitled Drinking the Stars. Spanning his output from the 1990s to today, it showcases his compositional style and how it evolves over that time. The music ranges across splinteringly direct virtuosity, sinewy counterpoint, rich chordal meditation and much else besides; yet we hear unity in the artistic voice. The interplay of sets of terse miniatures, medium sized meditations, and lengthier immersive pieces gives a layered feeling when listened through as a programme. The selection of pieces includes nearly all of McLachlan’s piano compositions intended for the concert stage (as distinct from his pedagogical works).

 

Mary Dullea’s superb range of tone and mastery of timing are captured clearly and cleanly by Chris Corrigan’s expert engineering, in recordings made in Belfast and Kilkenny. This CD makes it possible to hear many works that have been heard only in live concerts before, by many pianists, scattered across many countries and years, and it is a great place to get an overview of this composer’s musical landscape. 

 

The CD features detailed liner notes by McLachlan and beautiful images by renowned artist Joanna Kidney.

According To the Moon by Sarah Album & Gayle Young 
CD is now available from Farpoint Recordings & Ars Subtilior

Canadian artist Gayle Young's unusual and imaginative approach as composer and musician situates her within a long lineage of maverick experimentalists. Though Young's output does not shy away from more conventional modalities as well, since the 1970's she has variously embraced electronics, graphic/text scores, installation, sophisticated tuning systems outside of equal temperament, the sounds of found objects and natural environments, and - perhaps most notably - instruments of her own invention. 

 

According To The Moon sees Young collaborating with Montréal-based vocalist Sarah Albu, one of Canada's most dedicated and curious performers of contemporary and experimental music. The disc follows another release from last year for Farpoint Recordings & Ars Subtilior As Trees Grow, which featured her piano music performed by Xenia Pestova Bennett and Ed Bennett. 

Copies of According To The Moon available to purchase here

 

For further information on their collaboration, you can read Sarah Albu's article for Musicworks magazine, Gayle Young's Gentle Interventions

New Release  Mixed Circuits by David Bremner - available now!
 

Rigorous and delicate treatment of four new works... excellently performed and documented... flavours that evoke the machine-like strand in the work of György Ligeti...

Michael Dervan, music critic and Irish Times contributor

 

David Bremner’s ambitious double CD Mixed Circuits is now available from Farpoint Recordings. Each of the four works on this double-album is a cycle of several short movements or panels, investigating a single impulse: the exploration of a minimal, drone aesthetic through an atonal harmonic fabric of continuous gradual unfolding. Gesture and rhetoric are avoided in favour of a flickering presence, with imperceptible transitions.

Get your copy priced at 16 euros from the Farpoint Recordings webshop

 

Mixed Circuits is available in CD and digital formats. The double CD version comes as a limited edition 6 panel fold-out eco pack sleeve and a 36 page booklet with extensive liner notes. It is published as a first edition of 500 copies.

The album is also available as a digital download (with a pdf booklet of the full album artwork featuring images, poems & liner notes) via Bandcamp, Apple Music and Spotify.

The Quiet Club + crOw as the quiet crow flies web.jpg

Out Now!  As the quiet crow flies - The Quiet Club + crOw - new expanded edition

A digital reissue of The Quiet Club + crOw 2016 release As the quiet crow flies, now with a new 24 minute extra track along with redesigned and expanded artwork. 

 

The confluence of one of 2015’s worst storms, a consequently stranded singer and postponed sound-check, and proximity to the home of Mr Roche resulted in the whiling away of an unexpectedly free evening in each other’s good company. Much listening and some making of sounds resulted in As the quiet crow flies.

 
Quietly...The Quiet Club + crOw reconvened and recorded a session at Library House, Dean Street, Cork on 15th October 2016 in advance of a national tour, now included in this expanded version of the original album. As the quiet crow flies is the result of a collaboration between two of Ireland’s most innovative duos – The Quiet Club (Danny McCarthy & Mick O'Shea) and crOw (Ian Wilson & Cathal Roche).
 

 

Digital - Available from the Farpoint Recordings Bandcamp page 

Physical - Copies of the original CD version of this album are available from the Farpoint Recordings webshop 

CD purchase includes a free download of this expanded digital edition!

... the quiet and understated music in these grooves ... is a slow and thoughtful exploration of sonic interplays and long tones…the listener can’t help but hear echoes of weather and oceans (and the cries of seagulls) in these abstract sounds. This may indicate that these players, unlike some more recondite EAI players, have not lost sight of some basic truths which help to root their work in the real world, and they’re not afraid to tell stories in their music. This is refreshing; one gets tired of all that non-associative music, which often ends up blank and empty, and As the quiet crow flies is bound to connect to any human being who has travelled overseas, gone for a solitary walk on the hills, or even simply gone outside.
