Join us for an opening social to launch the Idir Audio Trail and Zine, a site-specific project commission for this year’s festival edition presenting sound art, writings and visual art inspired by Sligo’s Doorly Park area. Taking place at The Blue Lagoon, it will also serve as a celebration to mark the opening of this year’s festival.
Idir is an audio trail and zine in which musicians, writers, and artists will guide you on a walk to the outskirts of Sligo, taking in sights and sounds not often noticed by tourists or by locals. Along the way you’ll meet the Garavogue river and it’s cast of birds and mammals, alien motherships, memories of those gone and mysterious frog people!
The trail features audio pieces by Clíona Ní Laoi, Fulacht Fiadh, jenn_dream_cycles, Katie Kim, Olivia Furey & Natalia Beylis tapping into the history and ecology of the area which can be accessed via QR code along the route – bring your own headphones to listen along. While stories from Alice Lyons and Paul Corrigan, essays from Mary Looby and Sean Hickey and narrative visual work from Kim Kennedy and the Faerie Lord collective cast Sligo in a new light and capture it’s soggy beauty at the close of the year.
