IMC: Piece by Piece – IMC and Triskel host a weekly sequence of online solo performances featuring leading Irish improvisers.

Each artist's input performance will influence or inspire the next performance in this musical chain. ‘Piece by piece', artists will create new improvised work, based on the preceding work. Improvising musicians are uniquely skilled at interpretation and spontaneous creation allowing for fresh creation of the highest calibre. These eight sequential solo performances in the new Piece by Piece series will be broadcast via IMC's YouTube channel, as well as IMC's and Triskel's social media platforms on Fridays at 8pm, beginning on Friday April 10th with a ‘live' solo performance from acclaimed guitarist and electronic improviser, Shane Latimer.

Other artists commissioned in this series include woodwind instrumentalist, composer and producer Seán Mac Erlaine, world-class improvising pianist Izumi Kimura, virtuoso trombonist and composer Paul Dunlea, composer, pianist and arranger Cormac McCarthy, improvising violinist, violist and composer Cora Venus Lunny, harpist and sound artist Úna Monaghan, and a duo input from couple saxophonist/composer/producer Nick Roth and Olesya Zdorovetska, vocalist, poet and composer. Enjoy fresh new music, influenced in real-time, from world-class Irish improvising musicians, telling the story of these strange times through new music and live performance, ‘piece by piece'. IMC and Triskel are committed to continuing to employ artists and engage audiences, particularly during these challenging times.
