Tuesday, 10th November 2009, the two year anniversary of the first Stet Lab, Cork’s premiere improvised music club, will be celebrated at the venue that saw its debut, The Roundy, Castle Street, Cork, Ireland.

Stet Lab will—in its two year old mould—feature both regular performers and newcomers. To mark the experimental extravaganza’s second birthday, the innovative trio from Bologna, Italy, Filario Farinoppo, will be improvising up a storm. Composed of radical multi-instrumentalists Dario Fariello (saxophones, viola, electronics and little instruments), Filippo Giuffrè (guitar and electronics) and Antonio D’Intino (bass, electronics and little instruments), the visiting trio are sure make the occasion with their distinctive Italian avant-gardisms.

In addition, Cork-based improvisers and Stet Lab (ir)regulars, Han-earl Park and Kevin Terry (guitars), will be performing as The Real-Time Company (for the Ad-Hoc Association) of…. Park is a constructor and performer of fuzzily idiomatic, on occasion experimental, mostly open, always traditional improvisations. He has worked with animators, film makers, poets, theater and mime performers, dancers and installation artists, and has performed in Denmark, England, Ireland, The Netherlands, Scotland and the USA. Terry is a guitarist and founding member the improv quartet OPKA. He performs in both fully and partially improvised contexts.

The event will begin at 9:00 pm (doors open at 8:45 pm) and entry is €10 (€5).

Stet Lab will continue on 7th December with Belfast-based improviser-composer-saxophonist Justin Yang.

what to expect: Stet Lab Year Three

The 2009/2010 season promises to expand and diversify the improvisitive geo-politics of Stet Lab. November will see the Lab welcome Filario Farinoppo—a trio of improvisers from Bologna, Italy—and the December event features the Californian composer-performer Justin Yang. Through 2010, the Lab will host visits by improvisers including Paul Stapleton (N. Ireland), Alexander Hawkins (England), Korhan Erel (Turkey) and Evan Dorrian (Australia).
