The  National Concert  Hall Presents Metronome: A  New  Collaborative  Series  of Emergent Music, New Projects and New Artists this Spring 

February 21, 2023

The National Concert Hall (NCH) is excited to announce Metronome; a new collaborative series in The Studio at the NCH. A gallery for sound, it presents emergent music, new projects and new artists. Working with Homebeat, Matthew Nolan Music and Gash Collective, the inaugural Metronome series sees The Studio host a myriad of engaging performances this March and April.   

On Thursday 16 March Ordnance Survey (aka Neil O’Connor) bring his Nomos: O’Riada Reimagined to the National Concert Hall. This project uses technology as a mode of expression so compositional processes are informed by sonographic representations - it is hoped that this variation adds to the language of experimental electronic music in Ireland. Neil will be accompanied by pedal steel player David Murphy on the night and support comes from Dublin artist Sharon Phelan. 

On Thursday 23 March improvisational group Zeropunkt bring their genre-defying show to The Studio stage. According to The Irish Times they are “The most enigmatic and uncompromising trio on the free Irish scene”. They describe their music as ‘the sound of now, the moment’. An exhilarating experience guaranteed. 

The following week three-piece electronic band Everything Shook (named as one of the Irish Times’ Best Irish Acts 2014 and Golden Plec’s Women Who Rocked 2015) launch their album Blacking Out on Thursday 30 March. The new long-player boasts a dizzying array of layered vocals, analog synths, beats and bass guitar and follows on from the acclaimed Drinking About You (2016). Everything Shook’s live show is injected with theatrical elements and synchronised choreographies to form a unique aesthetic. Support on the night comes from Any Odds. 

The final show of the series on Thursday 13 April sees celebrated Dublin contemporary guitarist Chequerboard return to launch his new album Souvenir.  John Lambert brings this new material to a live setting with the help of Barry Halpin (Crash Ensemble) on guitar and Mary Barnecutt and Lioba Petrie on cellos.  

Ordnance Survey and  Everything Shook are presented by NCH and Matthew Nolan Music.  

Zeropunkt  and Chequerboard are presented by NCH and Homebeat.
