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.

Foul Sound is a collaboration with the design student community of GMIT Letterfrack, Connemara Community Radio and a collective of artists.

The creative sessions will happen in late 2020 when 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 consolidated and produced 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.

More information to come.
