The National Association of Record Labels of Ireland (NARLI) is a nationwide umbrella organisation of independent labels, including Diatribe, Ergodos, Farpoint, Heresy, Raelach, Sofia Records and Tone Burst, with associate members IMC, Crash and Islander.
Every year since 2016 NARLI have convened for an AGM (Annual General Music) which is released as the ‘Minutes’ of the meeting.
The NARLI AGM 2022 in the NMD @ NCH will also feature an all-day record fair with representation from all partner labels.
With special guest Reggie Chamberlain-King, editor of the anthology The Black Dreams: Strange Stories from Northern Ireland, published by Blackstaff Press earlier this month.
Reggie will be introducing some contributors to the anthology from the Seamus Heaney Centre, including Sam Thompson, Aislinn Clarke, and Emma Devlin. There will be live musical accompaniment to some of the readings, and the opportunity to buy the book on the night.
Catalyst Audio Tracks is a Catalyst Members series that focuses on the world of sound art. We reached out to our members to submit work in Drone, Noise, Ambient, Electroacoustic, Field Recording, Synthesis Exploration, or All/None-of-the-above and this compilation is the result.
This event is the presentation of that compilation and it takes place in the Sonic Arts Research Centre‘s very own Sonic Laboratory. A specialist acoustic space designed with 48 loudspeakers, strategically located, will project and move sounds throughout the space, including underneath the audience.
