THISISPOPBABY with St. Patrick’s Festival present
WHERE WE LIVE: Landfall Live
To the backdrop of the dual–screen film installation Landfall, Peter Maybury presents a one–off live solo drum performance combining realtime processed electronic music with acoustic drums and percussion.
Peter has released solo recordings under the Hard Sleeper alias, is an occasional collaborator in David Donohoe’s Rainfear, and has released several EPs and toured extensively with Gavin Duffy and acclaimed band Thread Pulls.
Exhibition Landfall is an immersive sound and film installation that brings together observations on the island of Ireland as a set of geographical, social, political, and ideological conditions, charting the beat and the ballet of the changing city over much of the past decade.
Using multiple screens simultaneously, chronology and geography are disrupted, thus correspondences across the material are explored through sequence and juxtaposition, allowing a more complex reading of the subject to emerge. Sound, dispersed across the space, is synthesised, amplified and manipulated to shape perception of the films. Through accumulation, themes of contested ground, boundaries, containment, resources, energy, systems, and structures are explored.
Landfall is an immersive sonic and visual installation from artist, graphic designer, musician and educator Peter Maybury, curated by Eamonn Doyle, Niall Sweeney & David Donohoe (Made in Dublin at Where We Live 2019).
Presented in partnership with St. Patrick’s Festival.
