A Performance in Two Halves

Panos Ghikas, Wobbly (Jon Leidecker) and Jennifer Walshe join forces for a performance in two halves. In the first half, the trio explore the outer limits of digital sound, text and time, cybernauts journeying through a landscape scattered with defunct and cutting-edge technology, quotes from inspirational speeches given by tech billionaires and sonic detritus ranging from Machine Learning research to Buntús Cainte recordings.

The second half features a screening of Caoimhín Breathnach’s AN GLÉACHT, with a live score. Outsider artist Caoimhín Breathnach (1934-2009) lived as a recluse in Knockvicar, Co. Roscommon, Ireland, for all of his life. Breathnach’s artistic practice focussed on the creation of “subliminal” tapes and films which he believed possessed the capacity to shift consciousness. In these works, Ogham magickal scales, crystallography, astronomy, folklore & natural phenomena are combined with found audio and visual material to produce an idiosyncratic, esoteric system of correspondences. Breathnach spent the last years of his life planning a film called “AN GLÉACHT”. The work was to combine subliminal tapes and films with filmed footage showing a sequence of occult rituals at sites in Ireland ranging from the hellmouth in the Caves of Kesh to Tobernalt holy well. In 2015 Cork Film Festival commissioned Jennifer Walshe (Breathnach’s great-niece) to complete AN GLÉACHT.
