Tonight in the Project Arts Centre as part of the Dublin Fringe Festival our own Siobhán Kane will present a lecture on music entitled Life Has Surface Noise. Adrian Crowley and Dónal Lunny will be there to provide musical – and emotional – support.
What is it about a song that just catches you at a particular moment and stops time? Music Journalist, scholar, and all-round arts eclectic Siobhán Kane, accompanied by singer-songwriter Adrian Crowley presents an exploration of music and its meaning in our lives; mingling memoir and criticism, with some live accompaniment, and surprise contributions. Confirmed so far for the evening are Donal Lunny, the author of Greenbeat Darragh O’Halloran and DJ Peter Toomey.
Says Siobhán herself:
Róise of the Fringe Festival asked me a few years ago to do a music lecture – I always said no, but since she is leaving this year, I gave in and said yes, and am quite anxious about it… I thought I would reach out to people who I thought might appreciate the theme of the night, and music, taking the cue from John Peel that- “life has surface noise” – which was a remark he made when someone said to him that “CDs are better than vinyl because they don’t have any surface noise.”
