Joseph Young live performance in the Ceramic Garden

The current crisis forces us all to be creative. When my partner, sound artist (and co-habitor of The Ceramic House) Joseph Young’s concert in The Orangery at Killruddery in Bray, Ireland was postponed we decided instead to film the performance in the garden of The Ceramic House in Brighton. All of the sounds you will hear have been recorded in and around the Killruddery estate and feature members of the Brabazon family telling stories related to the archive. These sounds are performed live using Joseph’s custom made Sonic Baton instrument (a modified conductor’s baton connected to a laptop), accompanied by a haunting musical underscore to create a unique “live experience” for the digital realm.

The resulting film goes live on the Killruddery YouTube channel at 4pm BST Sunday 5th April and there will be a short introductory film on Killruddery’s  Instagram Stories.

The work is part of a practice-based PhD “Killruddery: Listening to the archive” with SMARTlab UCD, Inclusive Design Research Centre Ireland, funded by an Enterprise Partnership Award from the Irish Research Council in partnership with Killruddery Arts, Culture, Ecology & Heritage.
