Zeropunkt  and Chequerboard are presented by NCH and Homebeat.  

Ordnance Survey (aka Neil O’Connor) bring his  Nomos: O’Riada Reimagined  to the National Concert Hall. This project uses technology as a mode of expression so compositional processes are informed by sonographic representations - it is hopedthat this variation adds to the language of experimental electronic music in Ireland. Neil will be accompanied by pedal steel player David Murphy on the night and support comes from Dublin artist Sharon Phelan.  

On Thursday 23 March improvisational group  Zeropunkt  bring their genre-defying show to The Studio stage. According to The Irish Times they are “The most enigmatic and uncompromising trio on the free Irish scene”. They describe their music as ‘the sound of now, the moment’. An exhilarating experience guaranteed.  

The following week three-piece electronic band  Everything Shook  launch their album Blacking Out on Thursday 30 March. The new long-player boasts a dizzying array of layered vocals, analog synths, beats and bass guitar and follows on from the acclaimed Drinking About You (2016). Everything Shook’s live show is injected with theatrical elements and synchronised choreographies to form a unique aesthetic. Support on the night comes from Any Odds.  

The final show of the series on Thursday 13 April  sees celebrated Dublin contemporary guitarist Chequerboard return to launch his new album  Souvenir.  John Lambert brings this new material to a live setting with the help of Barry Halpin (Crash Ensemble) on guitar and Mary Barnecutt and Lioba Petrie on cellos.
