In a temporary world where darkness conceals more than just the night. “Faoi Choim na hOíche; under the cover of night”, a clandestine journey into the thriving underground of electronic music culture. This audacious venture by the Electronic Music Council transforms Cork City Hall into an enclave of immersive audiovisual experiences, where the senses dance to the beats of the unseen.
Navigating through the labyrinthine corridors, you’ll find yourself amidst pulsating techno and soulful house music, where every note is a brushstroke on the canvas of your perception. It’s not merely an event; it’s an odyssey into the heart of electronic soundscapes, where melodies and rhythms intertwine like intricate vines, giving birth to an auditory tapestry that resonates with your very soul.
The main concert hall is a portal into another dimension. Under the incandescent glow, Waterford’s enigmatic electronic muse, Cailín, metamorphoses into her dual personas, Cailín & GRL. A symphony of dualities, a collision of identities, sending shockwaves through the crowd.
The grand crescendo—the much-anticipated premiere of “Drones from the Island” by HYBRASIL Live. The stage is no longer a stage; it’s a portal, a looking glass into the realms of the extraordinary. The music blends seamlessly with the audiovisual art, each stroke of light harmonizing with every beat, painting the air itself with iridescent hues.
Visual art dances with sonic frequencies, each stroke and note entwining in a dance of their own. It’s a dialogue between two mediums, a conversation that transcends words.
“Faoi Choim na hOíche” is more than an event; it’s a transformation. It’s where sound meets sight, where the mundane evaporates and leaves behind a residue of wonder. It’s where you become a part of the art, where your very presence completes the masterpiece.
