Tunes, chocolate, chill 10 things you have to see and do at

Han­ni­gan, up there with Ire­land’s best con­tem­po­rary singer-song­writ­ers, is a per­fect fit for Body & Soul. Along with her 2008 de­but See Sew (still a fond mem­ory), it’s likely that she will be pre­view­ing ma­te­rial from her ea­gerly an­tic­i­pated forth­com­ing al­bum. If for some rea­son you don’t get to see her at Body & Soul, Han­ni­gan is un­der­go­ing a na­tion­wide tour – but re­ally, this is the time and the place. Han­d­ley and Andy Turner) han­dle elec­tronic mu­sic the way a bomb dis­posal en­gi­neer holds a pair of wire cut­ters: care­fully, full of due con­sid­er­a­tion and re­spect for the work­ings of some­thing they in­her­ently un­der­stand. When they’re not cre­at­ing mu­sic that is equal mea­sures glitchy and tune­ful, they are remix­ing the likes of Björk, Gold­frapp and Red Snap­per. Ex­pect fave tunes to be per­formed, as well as snip­pets from their forth­com­ing al­bum, Scin­tilli.


Grammy win­ner Perry (75), quite likely the old­est per­son at Body & Soul, is some­thing of a le­gend in reg­gae and dub cir­cles – he started his ca­reer sell­ing records, and then went on to pi­o­neer both reg­gae mu­sic and sam­pling. His mix­ing­board ex­per­i­ments, mean­while, ef­fec­tively cre­ated the sonic pushes, pulls, shoves and waves of dub. Perry has sub­se­quently lent his skills to dub­step and be­yond. Still a mover and shaker, and still a mu­si­cian to be reck­oned

with. Pho­tog­ra­pher Aoife Banville is a Body & Soul stal­wart, and is a firm ad­vo­cate of early pho­to­graphic tech­niques such as pin­hole cam­eras. This year she is cre­at­ing the In­side Out­side in­stal­la­tion, which will transform a gar­den shed into a cam­era ob­scura, wherein the out­side world is re­flected on to the in­side of the shed. All well and good, but Banville has a few tricks up her sleeve, so pre­pare to be sur­prised.
