Cave Sessions 3, shot and recorded live in Mussenden Temple (itself situated above a cave on the North Coast), is a set of recordings inspired by refugee songs written in caves in the middle east 3000 years ago, and now performed in unique and iconic settings on the North Coast.
This showcase will reproduce much of the performance from Mussenden Temple in immersive audio with a live, 5-piece vocal group, and showcase the five immersive music videos recorded in Mussenden Temple on VR headsets.
A number of custom instruments were produced for Cave Sessions 3; a programmable robotic drum kit, an odd custom piano, and an instrument which crosses a cello and a sewing machine!.
These instruments will be on show in the Atrium, and their designers, Stu Reid and Andy Rogers of Stunt Double Music and Andy Rogers will be available to discuss their creation and use.
The event will showcase some of the outcomes from the project funded by Innovate UK and showcase the new Belfast Campus. The project as a whole produced a series of tracks by artists located on the North Coast, a set of traditional music videos and a set of promotional immersive music videos.
The immersive video content was produced by a team of staff and students from the School of Communication and Media to help explore new approaches to music promotion for emerging artists.
