The Foul Sound

Date 15.03.2021
Venue GMIT Letterfrack Campus
Organiser Louise Manifold

Drawing on John Cage’s 1979 composition, “Roaratorio: An Irish Circus on Finnegan’s Wake”, The Foul Sound brings together musicians, designers and artists to activate Cages creative process.


The project aims to collaborate with the design student community of GMIT Letterfrack, Connemara Community Radio and a collective of artists.

The creative sessions will happen throughout late 2020 in which students and artists come together and develop an improvised performance using the common denominator of wood, sound, and voice.

This process of engagement will be then be consolidated into a public event dealing with the senses, personal experiences and the living nature of wood to produce a call and response that activates past, present and future.
