After recently teaching at Darmstadt International Summer Course and Gaudeamus Music Week, Peter Ablinger visits Dublin to oversee a performance of his site-specific work 3 Places Dublin (17 September 2014), specially rewritten for three Dublin spaces. During his first visit to Dublin Peter will attend the Contemporary Music Centre for a masterclass with six composers: Ben McHugh, Amanda Feery, Jane Deasy, Nick Roth, Bryan Robson and Sebastian Adams.

Since the early 1980s, Peter Ablinger has explored new aesthetic and technical fields in his works, examining listeners' perceptions of sound, noise, timbre, performance context, and non-narrative forms through site-specific performances, installations, text-based works, instrumental and electronic collaborations (including his famous 'speaking piano' pieces), and music without sound.

Places and Responses was supported by Dublin City Council, the Austrian Embassy in Dublin, and hosted by the Contemporary Music Centre, Dublin
