Brunch will be served with experimental beats at Bobo this Sunday
If you’re a fan of live experimental music and art, you can immerse yourself in it completely in Cork this weekend.
Cork Sound Fair takes place in various venues this week, opening on Thursday, March 28th and continuing until Sunday 31st.
Now in its second year, the Fair will host a packed programme of live performances, exhibitions, residencies, and workshops, by artists working in experimental music, sound art, electronic music, field recordings, and video art.
Highlights (tickets from €10 here) include the opening concert, Diaphone; Diaphane, from Cork-based audio visual artist Darren Kirwan; experimental hip-hop from masked marauder Naïve Ted and crushing industrial beats, glittering psychedelic and ambient backdrops from Lighght.
Other must-sees are Last Eden – a live improvised project from Aileen Wallace and performances from UCC Javanese Gamelan Ensemble on their spectacular set of tuned bronze percussion instruments.
All that fun is sure to leave you with an appetite come Sunday, so follow the cool kids to Bobo Café at The Glucksman at UCC for the Cork Sound Fair Brunch.
Kicking off at 10.30am (brunch served from 12pm-4pm), expect performances by Gadget and The Cloud, and Under the Influence of FLUXUS curated by Danny McCarthy, before the closing celebrations at a special showcase at a secret city centre location, and the closing concert at Dali nightclub.
