SPECTRUM Festival: Brian Irvine Ensemble (IE)

Friday 8th March at the Button Factory sees the much anticipated return of award-winning composer Brian Irvine’s boundary-busting 13 piece ensemble more than a decade since their last live show in Dublin. Winner of the British Composers Awards as well as the Radio 3 Jazz Award, Irvine creates music that effortlessly mutates elements of contemporary classical, improvisation, theatre, thrash and ensemble adventures in a manner that begets pure joy and virtuosity!

Think a blissfully mutant cocktail of Zappa and the Instant Composers Pool, with a heavy dollop of Beefheart, Ornette Coleman, John Zorn and you’re halfway there.

Expect the unexpected from this utterly playful ensemble of world class improvisers, including luminaries such as Matthew Bourne on piano and Steve Davis on drums.
