Very much looking forward to the upcoming release of my double-album Mixed Circuits on the Farpoint Recordings label. Here is some information about the launch:
Launch of David Bremner’s portrait album Mixed Circuits
Sundays @ Noon Series at the Hugh Lane Gallery, Dublin: December 11th 2022, 12pm
Each work on this double-album is a cycle of several short movements or panels, investigating a single impulse: the exploration of a minimal, drone aesthetic through an atonal harmonic fabric of continuous gradual unfolding.
Conceived in partnership with Farpoint Recordings as an intensive exploration of cyclic form, and recorded and mixed/mastered by Farpoint’s David Stalling, the release features various chamber music combinations of four stellar performers: Andreea Banciu (viola), Elizabeth Hilliard (soprano), Paul Roe (clarinet) and Izumi Kimura (piano). The composition and recording process were supported by funding from the Arts Council / An Chomhairle Ealaíon.
This launch programme presents the world premiere of the most recent work on the album, Possible Vignettes, and an excerpt from Bremner’s 2014 song-cycle Logical Fallacies for soprano and viola on texts by Irish poet Billy Mills, a long-standing collaborator of Bremner’s.
