The Bonk is a project formed out of new recordings begun in 2014 by Waterford musician Philip Christie (O Emperor). These initial recordings were mostly undertaken and captured as live performances at Big Skin studios in Cork City.

Borrowing a term used to describe a state of mental and physical collapse, The Bonk often uses layered competing rhythms in a way that tends towards estrangement from the familiar. Time and time again, The Bonk plays (upon) ideas of time and repetition, repetition and time

Kit Downes and Lucy Railton “Tricko”

Lunchtime show. 1pm Kit Downes(concert grand piano) Lucy Railton(cello)

Having studied together at the Royal Academy of Music, their paths continued to cross in London’s improvised/new-music scenes until Kit finally started writing for cello (vicariously living out his dream as a frustrated cellist), at which point this ensemble was formed. Performing music from their previous EP and forthcoming album ‘Tricko-Tareco’, the music is expansive in scope, sonically rich – and enjoys simple things put in unusual ways. Their music has taken them all over, from London to Trondheim to Köln to Bolzano to Oslo. 8euro on the door 5euro student price
