The Fold is a series of four events taking place between March and June in St. Audeon’s Church focusing on new experimental and improvised music.
The Fold is a space for new improvised and experimental music. From noise and drones to jazz and traditional idioms, The Fold is a platform for emergent artists and new practice.
From March to June, four Fold events will present some of the most exciting, interesting, challenging and different artists at work in Ireland today (and some guests) in the special setting Dublin’s earliest surviving medieval church, St Audeons.
It is planned that The Fold will develop organically to become different events in different formats and spaces in the future.
The Fold is a collaborative project presented by Note Productions with the Bottlenote collective, Ninepoint Records and The Joinery. It is supported by design and technology consultants Iorum and the OPW.
