The Benjamin Dwyer Ensemble

9 October @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

£13 – £15

“SacrumProfanum”

Composer Benjamin Dwyer – (amplified ensemble and tape)

Featuring: Garth Knox (viola) Emma Coulthard (flutes) Siobhán Armstrong (medieval Irish harp, voice – Sean Nós) Benjamin Dwyer (bowed guitar) Jona Xhepa (text) Donnacha Dwyer (uillean pipes, recorded)

SacrumProfanum is a multimedia work for amplified musicians and tape that explores Sheela-na-gigs, the enigmatic stone carvings found in Ireland and parts of Britain.
Irish composer Benjamin Dwyer, an elected member of Aosdána (the Irish Academy of creative artists,  has spent the last ten years travelling across Ireland studying, photographing and sketching these mysterious figures. Responding artistically through the Sheela ‘as witness’, Dwyer has created a unique work exploring themes such as feminism, colonialism, identity, religion, rite, landscape, sexuality and the disintegration of Gaelic culture.
In a score that combines contemporary music, interfacing with traditional Irish forms, instruments and sean-nós singing, SacrumProfanum offers perceptive critiques of contemporary exploitations of Irish culture. It investigates these themes through raw, visceral, often abject but ultimately poignant and deeply affecting music.
