  • Galway, Ireland
  • Welcome to the second season of Piece by Piece! Following the international success of the series Piece By Piece in April-May 2020, IMC returns with a second season of this unique musical ‘chain letter’ of online improvisation, with eight exciting new artists from Ireland creating new work in sequence.
  • This series opens with a performance from Aengus Hackett.
  • Guitarist, composer and producer Aengus Hackett has been burgeoning jazz in the West of Ireland for more than 10 years, with Galway Jazz Festival and his ‘JAZZGate’ series, working with the cream of Ireland’s jazz scene. Aengus’ creative projects include explorations of Irish and Turkish folk music, Javanese Gamelan and post-rock. Giving into a lifelong passion for electronic music, this year Aengus released his acclaimed debut EP as ‘Penji’. His most recent EP ‘Shimmer’ was released on 24th November 2020.
  • Aengus’ work responds to elements of the previous series of Piece by Piece, taking inspiration from the words in Nick Roth & Olesya Zdorovetska’s work, using samples from Cormac McCarthy’s and Paul Dunlea’s videos, and using a chord sequence and samples from Izumi Kimura’s piano work.

  • With a fresh impetus for this second season of Piece by Piece, the principle of interconnectedness will continue, with each artist’s performance influencing or inspiring the next. Piece by piece, artists will create new improvised work, based on the preceding work.
