In 2009 Diatribe Records initiated the Solo Series Phase I with the belief that: “No other critic is as severe or as exacting of a musician as oneself, and it is for this reason that performing or recording solo is one of the most challenging idioms. The rewards, however, are correspondingly great, and form a vital step in evolution of the musician over a lifetime’s development.”
The four artists selected to form SOLO SERIES PHASE II of the Series are four of the most talented, focused, intelligent and creative musicians working in Ireland at the present moment. Collectively, they have been involved with many of the most critically acclaimed and innovative projects to come out of Ireland in the last decade.
Solo Series II is documentary proof that Ireland’s performers and composers may rightfully take their place as leading practitioners of their art amongst their international contemporaries.
The Solo Series Phase II was produced by Nick Roth for Diatribe Records, in partnership with the Sonic Arts Research Centre (SARC), the Contemporary Music Centre (CMC) and presented with funding from the Arts Council Music Recording Scheme, managed by Music Network.
