​​​​​​Bekah Simms Cryptid (2024) [world premiere]
Antti Auvinen Boundary Bourrée (2024) [Irish premiere]

Changing states in music, society and politics provide the inspiration for this programme from festival favourites Crash Ensemble—featuring the world premiere of Cryptid by Bekah Simms, written during her time as Composer in Residence with Crash, and the Irish premiere of Finnish composer Antti Auvinen’s Boundary Bourrée.

Described by the composer as ‘blurring the sonic relationship with the ensemble and its electronic doppelgangers to create a strange and surreal composite creature’, Cryptid is a work truly for and about the world-class musicians of Crash: representative colours and skins stitched into a single creature. Programmed alongside Auvinen’s incisive musical reflection on shifting boundaries, this promises to be another fascinating evening at NMD with one of Ireland’s foremost new music ensembles.

Cryptid was commissioned by Crash Ensemble with support from the Canada Council for the Arts, and was written during Bekah’s time as Composer in Residence with Crash Ensemble.
Boundary Bourrée was commissioned by Tampere Biennale.

Presented by New Music Dublin in partnership with NCH & RTÉ and supported by The Arts Council
