In partnership with Dún Laoghaire Rathdown Arts Office
Nick Roth is a saxophonist, composer, producer and teacher. His work explores the liberation of improvisation from composition, the impact of natural form on technology and the contemporary interpretation of traditional music. He is a member of several music such as jazz ensemble Yurodny, or collective Sefiroth and is also a director at Diatribe Records, Ireland’s leading independent record label for new music. While at the CCI, he will develop ‘Orchidée’, a creative collaboration with photographer Thomas Balaÿ, light artist Nathalie Junod Ponsard and the Scientific Departments of the Muséum National d'Histoire naturelle (MNHN) and Naturalis Museum, Leiden. The composition of the music will be based on DNA sequences for each of the five evolutionary families of the orchid.
