Péist and Aoibhinn O’Dea
Péist is a group of five Limerick-based musicians and artists. They utilise a mix of synthesisers, electro-acoustic instruments and purpose-built software to improvise music and experiment in sound. Their process is based on careful listening and creating fluid responses to one another. On the occasion of Light Moves they will expand their improvisational process to working with movement and dance artist Aiobhinn O’Dea.
With independent practices rooted in improvisation, they are collectively interested in exposing and making public the dynamics of improvisation in a performance context. Writhe opens the artists’ processes outward, welcoming the potential successes and failures, the flow between discordance and cohesion and the creative energy that comes from an openness to precarity.
Peíst are Mícheál Keating, Daithí Mac Cruitín, Eilis Mahon, Cian McGuirk and Caimin Walsh.
