The new piano composition will premiere at The Lark on November 2nd.
Legendary Irish avant-garde instrumentalist, recording artist and producer STANO, is set to premiere he and Conor Linehan's new composition 'Dreams of a Forgotten Place' in an immersive event at Balbriggan's new state-of-the-art concert hall The Lark.
Throughout an illustrious career of nearly 40 years, Stano has firmly remained a cult legend in the Irish music scene; recording 24 albums, numerous singles and film soundtracks, since his lauded 1983 debut, Content to Write in I Dine Weathercraft.
A contemporary suite for two pianos, 'Dreams of a Forgotten Place' will be performed live by renowned musicians Conor Linehan (Royal Shakespeare Company, Irish National Opera) and Lance Coburn (Sydney Symphony, RTE National Symphony and Hibernian Orchestras).
During a period of lockdown experimentation, Stano began exploring new sonic textures utilizing digital production tools, creating layered piano chord combinations. Using the tracks as a creative foundation, Stano set to work with Conor Linehan and the support of the Arts Council, to reimagine and rearrange the new tracks for live piano performance.
the new piece is also set to be played on the only two tonally matching Steinways in the country.
The live performance of 'Dreams of a Forgotten Place,' is set to be an immersive musical experience, accompanied by stunning visuals by Director of Photography Brendan Galvin and a post-performance screening of the piece.
STANO: Dreams of a Forgotten Place will take place on November 2nd at The Lark Balbriggan, with tickets available here.
