Cork City Gaol (map)
Quiet Music Ensemble play deep listening music by Yoko Ono, John Godfrey and Cat Lamb. In 1927, Cork City Gaol hosted one of Ireland’s earliest radio broadcasts, the simple sound of cartwheels on cobbles. RTÉ lyric fm has commissioned is this on?, a new work for radio from renowned Irish composer Karen Power to mark the place of that first broadcast and to pay tribute to the profoundly significant contributions by women to Ireland’s turbulent history in the early twentieth century. It will be performed by Karen in concert along with works by Yoko Ono, John Godfrey and Cat Lamb played by the Quiet Music Ensemble, and broadcast live from 8pm on Nova with Bernard Clarke on RTÉ lyric fm.
