Specially commissioned by Cork Jazz Festival, this immersive audio visual experience fuses Jazz, contemporary classical music and electronica into the beautiful setting of Live At St. Luke's. Stunning 4k microscopic projections, an impressive lighting show, and a live jazz quartet unite to open this year's programme, asking us to examine what it is that connects, unifies and binds us. 

Unity will be performed by The David Duffy Quartet comprising of four musicians on the fringes of Jazz. 

David is one of the most innovative composers and bassists to come out of Ireland. As a composer he co-founded Eat My Noise with fellow composer Peter Power, where for the past six years the duo produced shows for Cork Film Festival (Flux, Inquyre), Fierce Festival (Moiety), and Cork Midsummer (A:volution) among many others. As a bassist he has performed with names such as Jack O Rourke, The Niall McCabe Band, The Hard Ground and Declan O Rourke. David has spent the past two years in Barcelona, and returns from one of the centres of audio visual art in Europe with his new show.

Tom Hodge is a composer, Pianist and Clarinetist from London. Through his various collaborations with artists including Max cooper, Floex and Franz Kirmann, he pushes the boundaries of experimental contemporary classical, jazz and electronic crossover music. Tom’s recent work includes the score for prime time BBC drama Mcmafia

Emil Nerstrand, a Swedish Saxophonist blurs the lines between Jazz, and kraut rock with his ensemble “Fixity” while possessing a unique Scandinavian saxophone tone, who is at home in both the avant garde and pop worlds, and comfortably lives between the two.

Davie Ryan and his work with Notify, Cormac McCarthy, and Sup challenge where Irish traditional music and Jazz meet, while also being one of the most in demand drummers in the country, performing with names such as John Blek, Ariel Posen, Jack O Rourke and Marlene Enright.

Visuals are provided by Barcelona based artist Jan Barcelo, whose work uses detailed microscopic 4k video, to create surreal organic worlds.

Experience Unity in the magnificent Live At St. Luke's, where visuals, lighting and sound combine to create something truly captivating and new for this Cork Jazz Festival.
