Arcade Fire’s Richard Reed Parry brings his folk project Quiet River of Dust to The Everyman, Cork, as part of Sounds from a Safe Harbour (SFSH).
Quiet River of Dust was partly developed during a residency at the first SFSH in 2015. Now four years later, Sounds from a Safe Harbour is thrilled to present this finished work on The Everyman stage.
Japanese folk myths, death poems and British folk music are tributaries flowing into a river of late-20th century avant-garde composition and traditional song craft, written and performed by Canadian multi-instrumentalist Parry, a member of a Grammy-winning rock band. This is a meditative, widescreen musical experience with Beach Boy harmonies and a hypnotic pulse. Layered songs move in a linear fashion, following a current rather than circular composition.
Through Quiet River of Dust, Parry wants to create a tangible aural garden of rapturous colours that invite exploration. It is an immersive experience. In his only Irish performance this year, see him perform here on The Everyman stage, along with some very special guests.
