An immersive installation combining music, sculpture, light, text and video mapping. No Other Word For It takes as its starting point the question of ‘tradition’ in both classical painting and sculpture, and traditional and classical music. The installation includes a new composition by Ailís Ní Ríain which combines classical and traditional music featuring performances by leading Irish and British musicians and sculpture by the British artist Nicola Dale.
Musicians: Jack Talty [concertina], Sarah Watts [clarinets], Cormac O’ Brien [bass], Mark Redmond [uilleann pipes], Ciaran Carlin [flute/whistle] and Joanne Quigley [violin]
