DMARC / CSIS member presents an instillation as part of New Music Dublin Festival
In the forty years since the release of Brian Eno’s Music for Airports the concept and aesthetics of ambient music have proliferated, influencing artists as diverse as Taylor Deupree, Steven Wilson, David Lynch and The Orb, infusing drone, microsound, minimalism and experimental electronic music as well as aspects of contemporary instrumental music. The aim of this two-day conference is to appraise ambient music in relation to Eno’s milestone release.

Neil O Connor will host as part of the DMARC Seminar series entitled Whats the Score – Film and Improvisational Electronics in which he shall discuss his musical work for the visual medium. I will also be performing a live score to Chris Markers seminal 1962 Sci-Fi short film La Jetee. Constructed almost entirely from still photos, La Jetee tells the story of a post nuclear war experiment in time travel. It is 28 minutes long and shot in black and white. The 1995 science-fiction film 12 Monkeys was inspired by and borrows several concepts directly from the film.
