We're taking this show on the road! Chartered Accountants Ireland is collaborating with Science Gallery at Trinity College Dublin to present SOUND CHECK OFFSITE on Culture Night, on Friday, 22nd September. Join us for an entertaining evening of music, making and talks exploring the music business and the world of sound.  

In the lobby of Chartered Accountants Ireland House at 47-49 Pearse St, there'll be a special synth meet-up and William Abbott will host an oscilloscope demo throughout the evening –– come along to learn about the patterns made by sound, or try your hand at creating new sounds on the synths. 

In our offsite NOISE STUDIO, you can learn how to build tiny instruments, a kazoo or a light theremin, or try to make your own music on a selection of instruments specifically chosen for younger Culture Nighters; there'll also be music-making workshops for kids from Chartered Accountants Ireland.

We’ll be kicking off the evening of talks in the basement theatre of Chartered Accountants Ireland House with Quavers to Quadratics by physicist Shane Bergin, looking at the physics of sound. This will be followed by an in-depth look at music and money, with panellists Sarah Sweetnam (IMRO), Ciaran Conroy (Milestone Management) and Eoin Connolly (Deloitte) discussing the financial and commercial challenges faced by musicians in the industry. This discussion will be hosted by Storyful’s Laura Byrne.   

And exclusively for Chartered Accountants Ireland members, clients and students, there will be tours of the Institute art collection at 6pm and 7pm. Spaces are strictly limited and you can register for tickets here and here. In the café, there'll be a demonstration of music from The Tiny Quartet featuring soloist Sarah Lynch. 

To finish off the night, Julien Clancy will be exploring the mysterious origins of the theremin as part of a special episode of Sounds Alive, his series celebrating stories told through sound. Click here to register for free tickets for Sounds Alive.
