IMC’s NAVIGATOR Residency - Emilie Conway
Improvised Music Company (IMC) and The Source Arts Centre are delighted to announce jazz vocalist, composer and disability rights campaigner Emilie Conway as the artist selected for the NAVIGATOR music residency programme in Thurles this Autumn 2022.
The 14-day Navigator Jazz Residency programme offers jazz and improvising musicians professionally remunerated time and space to develop and perform work, while building creative and professional relationships in new locations.
Emilie is an award winning vocal jazz artist, composer and lyricist. Her music is informed and complemented by her love of literature, poetry, sound and silence. She blends her own compositions, spoken word/poetry, with improvised or composed music. Emilie's arts practice is multi-disciplinary as Emilie creates work through a process of singing, writing, dancing and painting. Her music focuses on 3 areas: jazz and art/literature, jazz and disability and jazz and children As an accredited art psychotherapist, Emilie also believes in the healing power of art and multi-disciplinary creative expression.
"I'm very grateful for the opportunity of this residency. The two pandemic years have been very difficult as an artist and particularly as an artist with a disability. The idea of being supported for two whole weeks to solely focus on my art is like a dream come true and couldn't come at a better time for me. I'm very curious and excited to see what it brings. I imagine it will be creatively healing, energising and, I hope, productive!"
Our current projects include a commission with Poet Grace Wells to complete 4 video poems based on the Celtic Seasons.
Long-form Music Commission Series
Musicians are asked to create 9-12 minute pieces of music using it as a space to experiment over the longer track time.
