Join us on a journey in the footsteps of Orpheus as we delve into the underworld to retrieve the sounds that lie below.
Jóhann Jóhannsson found inspiration in the Greek myth and presented his interpretation in the album Orphée, a work that labelled him “one of the brightest lights” in the post-classical genre. In a new arrangement by Aran O’Grady, Glasshouse play tribute to the bright light cast by Jóhannsson in his lifetime.
Glasshouse are joined by chamber pop ensemble sfiiinx for the night, with new music by Síobhra Quinlan inspired by the songs that lie below. This is an exciting collaboration between two emerging ensembles on the Irish scene.

“The @MusicGlasshouse Jóhann Jóhannsson show last night was such a beautiful immersive elegiac tribute & celebration.”- @NiallCrumlish
