Dennis McNulty installation at Visual Carlow

CONNECT’s Artist in Residence, Dennis McNulty, currently has an installation, TTOPOLOGY, at the Visual Centre for Contemporary Art in Carlow.

TTOPOLOGY considers the technologies and systems that have been developed, cast aside, or revised in order to advance our human potential. Coupling technology and art, McNulty explores the fields of science, engineering, built environment, retro technologies and future possibilities. Read more about the installation here.

On Saturday, 19 May, two events will take place to coincide with the concluding of the installation at the Visual Centre.

Sound  Performance: DAXA: Half Crystallised But Still Breathing
Date: Saturday, 19 May 2018
Time: 4pm
Location: Carlow College Library

Developed by musician David Donohoe and Dennis McNulty, DAXA is an intervention into existing electronic musical instrument architectures. It works within the limitations of a particular musical system, consisting of a MIDI controller and a vintage DX7 digital synthesiser, to open up new possibilities for live sound creation. It changes the terms of engagement between the musician and the instrument.
