Multi-instrumentalist Peter Broderick has announced his new record ONE HEAR NOW, a modular composition split into 11 parts.
ONE HEAR NOW will be Broderick's first release since Peter Broderick & Friends Play Arthur Russell in December 2018.
The record is inspired by a series of murals titled One Here Now: The Ogham Cycle, created by Irish artist Brian O’Doherty (also known as Patrick Ireland).
Broderick spent 16 hours alone in the Sirius Arts Centre in Cobh making a recording of the composition surrounding O'Doherty's murals, and approached the project by appointing different musical notes to colours, allowing the colours of the murals to dictate the sound. He also gave different visual elements their own instruments, and used field recordings from the location to add to the record.
ONE HEAR NOW is a 35-minute composition for violin, voice, piano, synthesizer, percussion and field recordings.
The album will only be available in physical form from Broderick's four-day residency at London Servant Jazz Quarters in November. Across the four nights (11-14 November), Broderick will be joined by special guests including Richard Youngs, Douglas Dare, No Show, and a secret surprise guest on the final night.
