Participant & Flight of Fancy: The Relaxation Tape

D-Light Studios Presents - Participant & Flight of Fancy - The Relaxation Tape

Built around an early 80's cassette guide to relaxation, The Relaxation Tape is an audio-visual performance combining music, found sound, and live visuals, in aid of Pieta House.

Excerpts from the original cassette and the songs of Participant will be accompanied by shadow puppetry by Flight of Fancy. Expect a uniquely atmospheric show in the wonderful surroundings of Dlight Studios Dublin

Participant is Stephen Tiernan, a songwriter and producer from Dublin. At its core Participant is fragile, emotionally direct songwriting, wrapped within a sonic armour of layered samples and textures. Tiernan has become known for his considered recordings, stunning music videos, and experimental live performances.

Flight of Fancy are a shadow puppetry group formed in 2015. They have performed in Smock Alley Theatre, at the Galway Theatre Festival, Lúnasa Music and Arts Festival, and at A4 Sounds for Culture Night 2016 & 2017. Co-Founder Marie Denham is a visual artist who is a specialist in puppetry, light and shadow art. Marie will be performing live with a new set of bespoke visuals for The Relaxation Tape.
