pro­duc­tions and remixes which are per­fectly pitched and finely tuned for the kind of house mu­sic in vogue at the mo­ment. on dance­floors and ra­dio air­waves. Check his Knee Deep In Sound mix al­bum from late last year for a taste of his deep, emo­tional sound with its rubs of clas­sic house and tech. TRAD Anne Marie O’Far­rell Part­ner­ing an in­stru­ment, mu­si­cian and venue with an ear and eye to de­tail is tricky, but this fi­nal con­cert in the cur­rent Ir­ish Com­posers se­ries fea­tures the beau­ti­ful harp play­ing of Anne Marie O’Far­rell (on both pedal and Ir­ish harps). O’Far­rell has proven her­self as both a per­former and com­poser, as her re­cent record­ings with Cor­mac de Barra have at­tested. THEATRE A Boy Called Nedd A lot has been hap­pen­ing for Theatre Up­stairs, the mod­est theatre space de­voted to new writ­ing on the Lif­fey. Re­cently it re­fur­bished its au­di­to­rium, switched its main agenda from lunchtime slots to evening per­for­mances, and wel­comed the young com­pany Bit­ter Like a Lemon as artists in res­i­dence. Fol­low­ing Lee Cof­fey’s Peru­vian Voodoo, an over-amped mono­logue play from Mark O’Rowe’s blue­print, comes some­thing more earth-bound, Emily Gill­mor Mur­phy’s play about a teenager try­ing to cope with his brother’s sui­cide in an age of in­ter­net vi­ral­ity. Karl Shiels di­rects. ART Prod­uct Re­call It’s a neat idea for a group show. Cu­ra­tor Anne Mullee mar­shalls four artists, Damien Flood, Veron­ica Fors­gren, Tom Watt and Sarah Baker, whose work takes on the idea of prod­ucts gone bad, ex­pand­ing the con­cept into ideas of de­funct be­lief sys­tems, dys­func­tion in gen­eral and con­sumerist cul­ture.
