Airborne Extended

SAT 26 OCT | THE SONIC LAB | 7PM, £12 / £8 CONC BOOK HERE


Airborne Extended of Austria is an all female quartet in search of unknown tonal combinations.

Their explorative approach makes for many combinations of instruments, with this concert alone featuring harp, harpsichord, a selection of ten recorders, four flutes and electronics.

Since 2013, Airborne Extended has explored these unusual combinations to create a world of new sound and colour, inspiring composers and audiences throughout the world. The success of their approach has resulted in a repertoire comprised mainly of commissioned works by living composers from Europe, Australia, Russia, Japan, Mexico and the USA.

We are delighted to present this special performance, kindly supported by the Austrian Kulturforum, which will take place in the most advanced acoustic space on the island – The Sonic Lab. We strongly encourage you to come along and be transported by Airborne Extended.

The evening will begin with a pre-concert panel discussion hosted by Evonne Ferguson, director of the Contemporary Music Centre, Ireland. Evonne will host a conversation with featured composers Ann Cleare and Adam McCartney, and members of Airborne Extended.
