Representing an International Irish Youth, AiR weaves songs and rhythms from a traditional repertoire through electro-acoustic composition. These are framed by a multi-media installation of Irish natural soundscapes, cinematography, stills photography and youth participants’ expressions inspired by the dramatic personality and natural heritage of the Irish Wild Atlantic Way and captured during ARTlifeCULTURE’s shared artist-in-residence experience.
Air is a multimedia youth arts installation with film, photography, natural Irish soundscapes, electro-acoustic composition, and live youth choral performance
Since 2008, ARTlifeCULTURE has been responsible for the design and development of children's and youth arts programmes around the world. Irish children have participated in ARTlifeCULTURE's international youth programmes in European Capitals of Culture and their performances have featured at youth arts festivals in Japan, China and Malaysia, and at Shanghai World EXPO 2010.
AiR is supported by the Arts Council and the Environmental Protection Agency.
