Soundings was a performance series based in Limerick, Ireland that presented new forms of music, sound art and media interaction. For five seasons Soundings championed Irish sound art composers and practitioners, while bringing the best of the global scene to Limerick.
By 2010 I found myself the only founding member, with the intriguing balance between city and university interests, performance and playback, national and international performers, high and low art, all rather diminished by circumstance. I thought it best, then, to wind up this marquee on a high note -- pun intended! Thanks to everyone who has taken part -- may the same energies continue in other guises.
