The Dingle Cookery School are organising food stalls in the town also for the weekend.
Grayscale made its debut last year with gig in the Rotunda Room with Mr Mitch and Clu last year and a followup has been announced.
Grayscale’s stated intention is to highlight audio-visual art in Ireland and once-off spaces is part of the deal it seems as the second event takes place in Wood Quay Venue on October 27th.
The venue houses an old part of the Hiberno Norse (Viking) City Wall dating from 1100AD, but the performers will be more up to date on the night with synthy lover Damien Lynch, r.kitt (a new track from his Pear-released EP features on the Nialler9 Podcast) with visual and lighting by Kevin Freeney (Algorithm/ Grayscale) and motion designer Dillon O’Sullivan (Algorithm Studios)
The event is part of Dublin Design Week. Tickets are €13.50 with fees from Eventbrite.
His newest release is on All City’s new sublabel Pear focusing on house music and you can hear two of these Kaleidoscopic house tunes on Bandcamp.
“My music is about 2 things: emotion and dancing. For me, the two are deeply connected. On the dancefloor, movement inspires feeling and feeling inspires movement. I want your mind and body to be lost in this experience. The Jigsaw EP is a map to get you there”
The release is out on 12″ and can also be bought with a long-sleeve tee. Release date September 15th.
