I just did a short spot on RTÉ’s Morning Ireland. Plugged the Human-Machine Improvisations (Cork, 2010) gig, and they also played a snippet of Bruce Coates with io 0.0.1 beta++ (audio recording below). I wonder how often improvised music gets on the national news 😉
Thanks to Franziska Schroeder, audio and video documentation of the performance on May 16th 2009 at the Sonic Arts Research Center, Belfast, N. Ireland (the closing concert of Sonorities 2009) is now online.
My trip to Belfast was made possible with the generous support of the Arts Council of Ireland.
Video: John Hough.
Audio: Jamie Smith.
Presented by the UCC Concert Series at the Lewis Glucksman Gallery, Cork, Ireland, on February 11 2009, during the exhibition Eye for An Eye: Representations of Conflict in 20th Century Ireland.
Thanks to Paul O’Donnell, Jesse Ronneau, Ciarán Meade, Carmel Daly, John Hough and Chris Paton.

Bruce Lee Gallanter of the Downtown Music Gallery has some nice things to say about the Park–Dunmall–Sanders–Smith CD [More info on this recording…]. Here’s, for example, is his take on the Park-Sanders duet:
Careful, crafty and well-played with that restrained yet fractured guitar that sounds so good. Han-Earl sound seems to be in between Derek Bailey & Philip Gibbs.
…or, you could always walk down to the Downtown Music Gallery 😉
A box of CDs has just arrived! This is the recording of the February 11th 2009 performance by myself with Paul Dunmall, Mark Sanders and Jamie Smith. A big thanks to Jamie (and Owlhouse Recordings) for all the work put into the production.
