St. Patrick’s Festival & Kormac presents Kormac: Equivalent Exchange a one off show by leading Irish producer, DJ and composer, Kormac with the Irish Chamber Orchestra, Kormac’s Big Band and an array of guests featuring over 30 musicians and artists including ArtSoul singer songwriter Loah and famed composer and conductor Eimear Noone performing a brand new collection of songs. More guests to be announced in the coming months.

In 2017 Kormac decamped to Bulgaria to study under Europe’s leading composers, conductors and orchestrators to learn new writing and production methods. The result, Kormac: Equivalent Exchange, with the Limerick based Irish Chamber Orchestra is an inspiring evening of unique collaborations which may never happen again.

Kormac: Equivalent Exchange’s creative concept is a new departure for Kormac. He has relinquished the writing and creative processes he has practiced over the last few years to try a completely new approach, embracing his new orchestral training to discover a whole new way of working, with a chamber orchestra at his fingertips and a new sonic palette to explore.

The principle of ‘Equivalent Exchange’ states that in order to gain something new you must first sacrifice something of equal value. Kormac has applied this to his own writing process, forgoing his usual way of working but also in how he is working with the artists he is collaborating with for the show, bringing them songs and ideas at an earlier stage than he normally would. In this way, he is giving up his usual level of control over the songwriting, allowing the collaboration to develop something completely new.

All aspects of the show involve deep collaboration and celebrated urban artist Maser has worked with Kormac to create the Kormac: Equivalent Exchange artwork and will also produce the show visuals.

Kormac: Equivalent Exchange
is sure to be a highly anticipated event on the 2018 music calendar. Make sure to get your tickets early!
