Phonica, curated since early 2016 by Christodoulos Makris and Olesya Zdorovetska, is a poetry and music series with an emphasis on multiformity and the experimental. This is a series that explores compositional and performative ideas, encouraging a melting pot of audiences and artists from across various artforms.
I’m delighted to feature in the sixth iteration of the event, which takes place next Monday at 7.30pm in Dublin’s Smock Alley Theatre.
Phonica: Six will feature performances from a host of trailblazing and award-winning Irish and international writers, musicians and artists working in the realms of new and electroacoustic music, contemporary poetry, installation and audio-visual composition,
Also appearing on the night will be:
