The James Joyce Centre are delighted to host the second of three planned performances of celebrated composer Stephen Gardner’s ‘Ulysses Extended’ on Wednesday 16 May at 7:30pm.

In this musical work, certain passages from James Joyce’s Ulysses are interpreted by a trio of Ellen Demos on vocals, Paul Roe on bass clarinet/clarinet and Shane O’Donovan on percussion. Throughout the work, Joyce’s words will be ‘extended’ into other sounds, both vocal and instrumental, with Gardner’s score serving as a springboard for various avenues of improvisation.
