THE THEATRE MACHINE TURNS YOU ON 4
The Jam Sessions kindly supported by The Porterhouse
are getting into bed together!
“How the hell do they make up those songs?”
Join us in Project Arts Centre for THE THEATRE MACHINE TURNS YOU ON 4 – The Jam Sessions where some of the Dublin’s scenes best bands and musicians take over the stage in one of dublin’s best known theatre venues. The bands are treading the boards.
We’re ripping apart the history, ethos, and the sonic boom energy of three wildly diverse genres of music. We’re offering the chance to peer into the hearts and brains of the people behind the song-writing process, and offering YOU the unique chance to help to shape a song as part of a live improv experiment where everything is to play for and everyone gets to play!
INSIDE THE SONG
Over three nights we promise you delectable aural pleasure with a killer line up of Dublin’s most singular musical offerings in the punk, trad, and electronic genres. Each night will be hosted by an expert in the field or independent music scene, who will give us a unique insight into that genre’s rehearsal and song-writing process.
ELECTRONIC - Wednesday 21st January :: 9.30-10.30pm
Electro-folk duo Carriages will take to the stage, and Emmet Condon ( HomeBeat,Another Love Story) will entertain us with unique insights into the genre.
PUNK – Thursday 22nd January :: 9.30-10.30pm
Fierce Mild will offer up their unique sound, accompanied by a talk on the independent music scene by Barry Lennon ( Seven Quarters/The Parlour)
TRAD – Friday 23rd January :: 9.30-10.30pm
Rebel rousers Lynched will bring a raucous trad set, while Oliver Sweeney (Music Journalist/Composer) will educate us on the genre.
SONIC WHISPERS - Saturday 24th January
How is music interpreted? How do we communicate through sound? How do musical genres influence us and how do they make us feel the way we do?
We want answers and we’re inviting you to come and help.
Saturday 24th January will see us host a unique, interactive sound experiment as we try to gain an insight into the creative process. Carriages, Fierce Mild, and Lynched will rejoin us to jam live on stage, along with Shelly Buckspan (Music Coach at BIMM).
HERE'S HOW IT WORKS
One band first. They play a tune.
The next band are brought on stage. They’ve heard nothing so far.
Then they band try to reinterpret the song played by the previous band... the only catch is that since they’ll have their ears covered backstage, they will be relying on you to gives them clues and cues of how to play! What was the rhythm, can you remember the lyrics, how about the structure of the verse!?
Sonic Whispers will be a playful, insightful, and utterly unique evening that will explore both the idiosyncrasies of the genres, and the underlying harmonies of all musical expression!
