CONNECTING WITH CONTEMPO
Creative Responses

During the Summer of 2020 we were approached by Galway Music Residency asking our members to respond to two pieces of Music played by ConTempo Quartet.  Two short films  with additional words by Students of MA in Writing, NUI Galway were produced.  "Creative Responses" was shown alongside an Exhibition of the Artworks and Olga Magliocco's short film responding to Philip Glass at our Culture Night event on Friday 18th September 2020 in the Courthouse.

  • The first film shows reponses to Philip Glass - String quartet No 2 "Company" with words by MA Student Hannah Kiely.

  • The second film is Olga Magliocco's response to Philip Glass.

  • The Third film shows responses to Beethoven's String Quartet OP 18. No 5, Andante Cantabile with words from MA Student Alison Meehan.
