Thanks: Sirene 1009 (Cork, 2017)

Sirene 1009: Caroline Pugh, Han-earl Park, Dominic Lash and Mark Sanders (Cork, 04-07-17). Copyright 2017 John Hough.

Here’s what the group sounds/looks like from where I sit on stage: Dom Lash’s confident and enthusiastic interjections in sound and line; Mark Sander’s unerring inventiveness—leaping any and all obstacles to musicality with gestures small and large; and Caroline Pugh’s pulling in-and-out of musical and linguistic spaces with her spontaneous conlangs.

Sirene 1009, “a fierce, adventurous band that goes… into the unknown, fearlessly in search of the new” (David Menestres, Free Jazz), makes their Cork debut as part of the Arts Council of Ireland funded series, starting with a free concert at 1:10pm on Friday, 7 April 2017 at the Aula Maxima, UCC, continuing at 8:00pm on 19 May, Stack Theatre, CIT Cork School of Music. Sirene 1009 is the cyborg virtuosity of Han-earl Park, the indomitable low-end growl of Dominic Lash, the unstoppable hits and clangs of Mark Sanders, and the controlled vocal mayhem of Caroline Pugh.
