Join us at the John Field Room in the in National Concert Hall for this unique evening of art and music.
The concert features original piano music composed on the Art of Jack B. Yeats and performed by Dr Svetlana Rudenko. Also in the program are:
Scriabin, Sonata N5 Op. 53, with visuals by Prof. Maura McDonnell
F. Chopin, Ballade N1 Op. 23, with Art by Ninghui Xiong
S. Rachmaninov, selected Preludes Op. 32.
The performance combines classical music with visuals to create a new way to experience classical music.
Many of Jack B. Yeats (1871-1957) paintings were inspired by Dublin people and locations, such as The Liffey Swim and Flower Girl, Dublin. The music performed in this concert was composed on the paintings and based on the psychogeography of places where Yeats took inspiration while living in Dublin.
The music also appears in our Augmented Reality (AR) art gallery Jack B. Yeats: Psychogeography, the most recent in our OpenAirGalleryAR series of novel locative art/music experiences for smartphones. Augmented Reality (AR) is a cutting-edge technology that we use for augmenting real-world locations with music and art.
OpenAirGalleryAR collaborates with artists and galleries to create immersive interactive experiences in Augmented Reality. Three apps have been published so far:
Synaesthesia Gallery AR: Journey Through the Senses (Brain Awareness Week 2022 Funding Award)
Alice Dal AR (Presented as a public event at EU Neuroscience Forum, Paris, 2022)
Psychogeography with Jack B. Yeats (Presented at International Conference on Applied Human Factors and Ergonomics, AHFE 2022, New York)
In addition to offering new types of cultural experiences, the apps also showcase our research on multisensory design and consciousness in enhanced digital realities. The apps are produced and published by Dublin-based award-winning Haunted Planet Studios.
