Just back from a rave New York debut, Ireland’s foremost new music group Crash Ensemble will premier new work by one of the founding fathers of minimalism, American composer Terry Riley.
The concert features the world premiere of Loops for Ancient-Giant-Nude-Hairy-Warriors Racing Down the Slopes of Battle, a piece written by Riley for Crash Ensemble and LCMS. This forms the cornerstone of this closing concert of a weekend of Riley’s music, his Irish debut. The weekend of contemporary music is run in conjunction with the Louth Contemporary Music Society and the Drogheda Arts Festival.
