CIT CSM graduate Percussionist Alex Petcu to perform in Midsummer 2016

20 June, 2016

Beats, Bells and Bridges
Alex Petcu and Tom Lane



Percussionist Alex Petcu and composer Tom Lane have come together to transform three sites in Cork into musical instruments. These locations (UCC Quadrangle, Mardyke Bridge and Shandon Bells) will host newly-composed, site-specific pieces for percussion that take advantage of the unique acoustics of each place.

Each of the three pieces has been created especially for the place in which it is to be performed. Beats at the quadrangle in UCC will explore the echoes and reverberation of the university’s historic quadrangle, Bridges will use the Mardyke Bridge itself as a percussion instrument and Bells will feature a duet between Alex at ground level and the unique bells of St Anne’s Church bell tower played by Brian O’Regan.
