Good news on the EU Creative Europe programme

The EU are looking to prioritise Europe as a creative hub.

There is huge richness in Europe (and Ireland) culturally that we have only begun to tap into. I don’t believe it should just be owned by the ‘Arts’, but by everyone. Creativity does not exist in a vacuum but by facilitating ‘touch points’ in a wide variety of areas. Collaboration leads to better creativity. Innovation is seeded by creativity. We need to capitalise on Ireland’s Creative strengths to grow our country to a better place.

SciLens is to tradition what silence is to sound.

Featuring a world leader in the field of computer music, a laptop orchestra and the nine exceptional musicians of the Yurodny Ensemble, SciLens involves the design and building of new gestural interfaces; physical and virtual electronics for the translation of traditional music from around the world into contemporary language and an exploration of the current meaning of sound in space.

SciLens is funded by the Arts Council of Ireland Project Awards and is produced in association with the UCD Imagine Science and Film Festival, Darklight Festival 2012, Imagine Science NYC and Diatribe Records, Dublin.
