Meditative arts event at Cathedral

One of the Culture Night highlights in Cavan Town this Friday promises to be a meditative experience in Cavan Cathedral.

The Empty Vessel is an audio installation of music in ten parts which is slow and meditative using percussive bowls, a singing bowl, bass voice and samples by Mark St.John Ellis with the vocal parts by Caitriona O’Leary. The Cathedral is open from 6-9pm for anyone to walk in and attend for as little or long as they wish.

Caitriona O’Leary is an early music and traditional Irish singer.

Mark St. John Ellis is a composer and curator. He is the creative director of the independent contemporary music record label DeNovaDaCapo.

The live event is a companion piece to a video produced last year by St. John Ellis.

While no booking is required, there is limited capacity in the venue and you may be asked to queue on arrival during busy periods.

The venue is family friendly and wheelchair accessible.
