DUBLIN SOUND LAB presents MUSIC CURRENT 2018 a three-day festival of the best in new Irish and international contemporary electronic music, Smock Alley Theatre, 12–14 April 2018.

Considered as the ‘Fringe’ of Irish new music festivals, MUSIC CURRENT, now in its third year, gives a platform for the newest contemporary electronic music, hosting four concerts over three days. This year’s festival focuses on piano repertoire and includes: Belgian iconoclast Stefan Prins and his Piano Hero series of works for piano, electronics and video; virtuosic American piano/percussion quartet Yarn|Wire showcasing new American and Irish works; renowned Irish improviser Izumi Kimura performing John Cage’s seminal ‘Sonatas and Interludes’ for prepared piano; and UK-based Xenia Pestova presenting a programme of all new works for piano and electronics.

Xenia will also perform a special concert of new international works developed during the festival by participating composers, one of whom will receive this year’s MUSIC CURRENT COMMISSION award of €2,500.
