#3024: Daniel Figgis' Snakes & Ladders

Email a Friend

For this New Sounds, composer and curator Daniel Figgis visits the studio to present megamixes from the Irish showcase for original music and video commissions called Snakes & Ladders: An Entertainment.  This multi-media live "happening" has toured Ireland and now makes its way to New York’s Symphony Space.  Listen to works by composer Roger Doyle, along with a recording of the cleaning of the Belvedere Theatre, and Uileann pipes with pedals.  The music performances run the gamut of disciplines, encompassing musique concrete, piano recital, free-improvisation, avant folk, metal, arena rock, and electronica, all accompanied by new video works.
