Heterodyne

By Fiona Hallinan

description

Heterodyne is a new project that will invite composers and musicians to 'score' roads ultimately creating a rich database of site-specific audio pieces for roads throughout Ireland and internationally.

My name is Fiona Hallinan, and I'm an Irish artist who has been creating site-specific audio works for the past six years, including It's an Audio Detour: a permanent commission for Project Arts Centre, The You That Is In It: a walking tour for IMMA, Three Rock Mountain Study for Repo Man at Kerlin Gallery and Roadscore: a research project and installation about the I95 highway for Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island. I am also an event organiser, co-ordinating Fraoch yoga retreats and HOMESTAY: an experiment in hospitality, a large scale social project for Science Gallery's Hack the City festival.

Five Scores for the Military Road is the first iteration of Heterodyne and five unique composers have accepted the task of scoring the Military Road, a nineteenth century route that passes through the Wicklow mountains. The composers are Caoimhín Ó'Raghallaigh, Cian Nugent, John Lambert (Chequerboard), ARROW-SHOWER and Brendan William Jenkinson.

The five scores will be contextualized with an original soundscape of field recordings created by sound designer Tadhg O'Sullivan.

The scores will be launched with a one-off event for funders who have pledged a certain amount in June 2013. Minibuses will leave Dublin loaded with the entire sound piece to be played along the road and deliver funders to the Military Barracks at Aghavannagh for a live music performance and reception. Funders who pledge over €50 will be invited to this special event, while those who fund over €75 will be given a space in mini-buses, which will leave Dublin and transport guests to the launch while playing the specially created scores.

The money raised will go to paying all the commissioned composers a fee and towards the print and design of limited edition promotional posters and CDs by the Dublin design studio Distinctive Repetition, with photography by Sean Breithaupt. It will also pay for this special launch event, which will act as a showcase for the project over all.

This iteration of Heterodyne is considered to be the first in a series of projects that will commission sound designers, composers, writers and poets to create site-specific audio pieces for roads. In funding Heterodyne: Five Scores for the Military Road you are not only funding a one-off commission, you are supporting the initiation of a totally new platform for commissioning original music.

Thanks for your time.

We made it: 100%

Thank you so much to everyone who helped get Heterodyne funded. Your funding support, shares, posts, emails and tweets really helped to make it reach its target yesterday. This is very exciting. Our launch date will be June 8th and we're happy to announce both Chequerboard and Caoimhin O'Raghallaigh will be performing. There will be canapes by the glorious Living Dinners, who make intricate raw plant-based dishes for pop-up evenings. See their work here: http://www.lovelivingdinners.com/ We'll also be collaborating with Mermaid Arts Centre in Wicklow for a responsive event later in the year. There are still a few tickets left for the launch, get in touch if you'd like to order one separately. All funds raised will go towards the project. Heterodyne is just beginning with this version for the Military Road, we're hoping to spread the idea and ultimately create a network of site-specific scores, commissioned by different organisations. Thank you for helping to get it started. Fink x

Living Dinners collaboration for our launch

Our launch is going to take place on June 8th at the very impressive Aghavannagh Barracks in County Wicklow, on the Military Road. There'll be live music, drinks and, we have just confirmed, locally sourced phenomenal snacks/canapes from Katie Sanderson of Living Dinners: http://www.lovelivingdinners.com/ It's going to be incredible: we're sourcing local produce and foraging to create a spread entirely sourced from the vicinity of the Military Road. If you pledge €75 or over we will drive you from Dublin city centre in a chartered mini bus, playing the newly created score as you travel the military road, to the launch for a beautiful summer evening. For €50 you will be invited to the launch. For either we will gift you with a limited edition poster, designed by Dublin studio Distinctive Repetition, with photography by Sean Breithaupt. Please spread the word as we hope to create a totally unique evening, a collaboration of so many talents working in Ireland today and would love to have you there. Thank you for your time. Best Fink
