Stano announces first live performance in 25 years

Avant-garde instrumental pioneer returns with Dublin tribute...

The Hot Press Newsdesk, 18 Sep 2013

Often cited as the original Irish indie experimentalist, Stano's unorthodox approach to his craft established a unique figure on the 1980s Dublin music scene.

A self-confessed 'non-musician', Stano enjoys keeping to the shadows, but will emerge on October 18 at Meeting House Square for the world premiere of Unspoken, his tribute to Dublin, his native city.

The forty-minute performance represents the fruits of a collaboration between Stano and acclaimed guitarists Sean Coleman (EELS, Mark Eitzel) and Dutch jazz player Jeen Rabs (Ray Charles, Harry Connick). A visual-heavy show, Unspoken, dedicated to the memory of late photographer and filmmaker Brendan Bourke, may well be Stano's most ambitious project to date.

“The performance will begin with slow, dreamy, atmospheric music, accompanied by expansive shots of Dublin," he says. "We drive through the night time city and head out to the Dublin mountains, the countryside is presented in abstract images as we speed by the heather and bog cotton in the early morning light. Our abstract journey through the mountains brings us crashing back to the city presented as a wild landscape as the lights and laser beams envelope the audience.”

Unspoken will get not one, but two airings on October 18 in Temple Bar at 8pm and 9.30pm. Tickets priced €10 available from Students /Unwaged €5 available on the door.

Currently on production duties for Temper-Mental MissElayneous' new EP, Stano will release his own latest creation, new record Unknown Distance on the night.
