Kraftwerk Uncovered: A Future Past Philip Glass: Music in Changing Parts A live reworking of Kraftwerk music by J Peter Schwalm, with film by Sophie Clements and Toby Cornish Following their highly successful Brian Eno/Apollo tour, which came to Dublin in 2010, Icebreaker are turning their focus on another contemporary icon – Kraftwerk. German artist J. Peter Schwalm has created a new work for Icebreaker based on material from a range of Kraftwerk tracks, articulating their journey from experimental krautrock band to international icons. The accompanying film by long-time Schwalm collaborator Sophie Clements and Toby Cornish, is shot almost entirely in the Ruhrgebeit, the district from which Kraftwerk famously come. It makes direct reference to Kraftwerk's heritage, setting the scene, for a picture of Germany at the time of early Kraftwerk, whilst at the same time touching upon themes ever-present in Kraftwerk's vision - technological progress, and man's relation to it. A purposeful departure from the dehumanised high-tech of the current Kraftwerk shows, the show references an earlier era of technological and industrial innovation, and the experimental or avant-garde film and sound work that came as a result, presenting at the same time a nostalgic vision of a 'future' now passed, and a modern reworking of a lost utopian dream Presented by New Music Dublin
Named after a Freddie Hubbard tune they played during their first performance, Skydive were brought together for the Chatham Jazz Festival as an all star band. Run as a cooperative, the quintet’s musical roots stem from mid1960s Hubbard and Hancock, through Brazilian music of the 1970s, and into their own contemporary compositions. Rowland Sutherland making a first time appearance at the club, has worked with Courtney Pine, Zoe Rahman, George Benson and is equally at home in the field of classical, music. Geoff Mason is currently with Ronnie Scott’s Big Band, whilst Jonathan Gee has recently been working with Pharoah Saunders and Cleveland Watkiss. Larry Bartley and the popular Winston Clifford complete the quintet line-up.
