17 May 2012
Doors open 8pm, concert starts 8:30 pm

Ergodos presents Laura Hyland (vocals/guitar) and Seán Mac Erlaine (reeds/electronics) in an evening of intimate solo performances. The evening is part of the "La Cat Acoustic events series
at the Back Loft, an in-house production of La Catedral Studios by La Cat Salons,  made possible by the Arts Council Small Festivals grant.

Both soloists will perform in the atmospheric setting of The Back Loft, part of La Catedral Studios. Hyland will perform completely acoustic, while Mac Erlaine will perform on a portable multi-channel rig designed by Dan Trueman, last year’s Fullbright Scholar at Trinity College in the Music Department.

Laura Hyland is a performer-composer. In 2008 she founded the quartet Clang Sayne to explore the boundary between song and improvisation. Under her direction, the group released their debut album, 'Winterlands' in 2009 to notable critical acclaim. She is currently developing a choral section for the group with fellow composer/singer, Judith Ring, and singer Laura Murphy.

Seán Mac Erlaine is a Dublin based multi-instrumentalist and composer, recognised as one of Ireland’s most forward-thinking jazz musicians. Seán works in a variety of settings maintaining a busy performance schedule in Ireland and internationally.

The concert has been curated by Ergodos, the Dublin based music production company and record label run by composers Garrett Sholdice and Benedict Schlepper-Connolly. Ergodos presents regular concerts and releases the work of contemporary composers and musicians.
