As guitarist/composer with free jazz electronic quartet OKO (“a revelation” - The Sunday Times) and or as curator with the Bottlenote Festival (“a no-holds-barred celebration of beautiful noise” - The Irish Times) Shane’s work is at the cutting edge of creative and technical exploration in modern music making.
Man or machine? It’s probably both if we’re talking about Shane Latimer, one of the most important figures in contemporary Irish experimental music. Aside from curating improvisational and experimental music across the Irish capital and at the famed Bottlenote festival, Shane plays, composes and improvises on the six-, seven- and eight-string guitar. His most recent work occupies that fertile space between nature and technology, using software and electronic processing to harvest the shimmering sounds of his guitar.
