Collider: Six composers, three musicians, one evening of experimental music...

From formal composition to improvisation, from the most delicate of acoustic whispers to the wilder discord, Collider brings together local artists and guests from around the globe to explore how music, in all its sonic manifestations, has the power to move us.

The Irish Composers Collective in collaboration with Note Productions present a unique musical offering. Six Ireland based composers will invite an audience on a sonic adventure with the legendary, free improviser, Peter Brötzmann. Our aim is to present a musical collision, where formal composition is met by visceral counterpoint.
