The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - MUSIC REVIEWS - SL Jim Car­roll LM Lau­rence Mackin

fea­tur­ing The Al­beiz Trio with Laoise Kelly on harp, Cor­mac Breat­nach on whis­tles and the su­perb Tola Custy on fiddle. The vo­cal/gui­tar duo of Josi­enne Clarke and Ben Walker round off what prom­ises to be a spe­cial night. CLUB Maya Jane Coles The Lon­don DJ (left) and pro­ducer’s rise to promi­nence has been a rapid one, helped by a strong track record when it comes to pro­duc­ing com­pelling elec­tronic mu­sic. Tracks like What They Say and Don’t Tell for la­bels like Mo­bilee, Dog­matik, 1trax and Real Tone have con­trib­uted to her pro­lific streak, which also seen her work on the She Is Dan­ger col­lab­o­ra­tion with singer Lena Cullen and release the bril­liant I/Am/Me al­bum of slo-mo, down­tempo, broody bass ear­lier this year as Noc­tur­nal Sun­shine. Sup­port from Shane Line­han and Emaleigh Kelly. FILM FES­TI­VAL Sub­ti­tle It’s the clos­ing week­end for this fes­ti­val cel­e­brat­ing Euro­pean sub­ti­tled films. On Sun­day night, Pauline McLynn will present the fes­ti­val’s An­gela Awards to cap a week of screen­ings, talks and in­dus­try wheel­ings and deal­ings. Black polo necks are op­tional.

ECM SE­RIES Few mu­si­cal vi­sions have been as sin­gu­lar and ef­fec­tive as that of Man­fred Eicher. The Ger­man sound en­gi­neer set up Edi­tions of Con­tem­po­rary Mu­sic in 1969, and since then has re­leased more than 1,000 records, each han­dled by Eicher with a com­mon theme and pu­rity of pro­duc­tion that is al­most as­cetic in its ap­proach.

Eicher es­chews most sound engi­neer­ing trick­ery, with ses­sions typ­i­cally last­ing a few days, and mix­ing tak­ing less. The re­sults, though, have been spec­tac­u­lar and have given the la­bel some­thing ap­proach­ing near-mythic sta­tus, from the fa­mous “ECM sound” to the beau­ti­fully re­strained de­sign of the al­bum cov­ers.

In tomorrow’s Week­end Re­view in The Ir­ish Times, you’ll find an in-depth in­ter­view with Man­fred Eicher, which took place while he was record­ing just last week.

This week­end, Triskel in Cork – which has long played home to many ECM artists – is cel­e­brat­ing the la­bel’s work with three nights of con­certs. On irish­times.com you’ll find an in­ter­view with June Ta­bor, who plays on Sun­day night with English folk act Quer­cus.

Amores Pasa­dos kick things off this evening in Cork, with Anna Maria Fri­man, John Pot­ter, Ariel Abramovich and Ja­cob Her­ing­man col­lab­o­rat­ing on work com­mis­sioned from John Paul Jones, Sting and Tony Banks of Ge­n­e­sis.

On Satur­day, trum­peter Arve Hen­rik­sen (above) shares a dou­ble bill with Al­bum of the Week awardees Food (see page 12), made up of Thomas Strø­nen on drums and live-elec­tron­ics and Iain Bal­lamy on tenor and so­prano sax­o­phones. Film screen­ings and Ban­ter dis­cus­sions with Jim Car­roll round out a week­end of cel­e­brat­ing the sublime. See triske­larts­cen­tre.ie for more.
