BLUE SKY MUSIC
Listen. Arthurs, Thomas St, Dublin, 8pm, ¤10, listen.ie
Composer Dylan Rynhart’s monthly music salon flies up into the clear blue skies of the post-genre future. Listen’s eclectic line-ups take the fear factor out of going to hear new and challenging music: if it’s too new, or a little too challenging, no need to run screaming from the room – there’ll be something different along in a few minutes. This month’s lucky dip includes a cello duet from RTÉSO cellists Yue Tang and Sokol Koka; Canadian songwriter Jona Xhepa sings and reads from her new novella; leading Irish jazz modernist Mike Nielsen plays his unique microtonal guitar with vocalist Ellen Demos and drummer Shane O’Donovan; and Rynhart himself premieres a new work. Just do exactly what it says on the poster and you’ll be fine.
