A type of music unlike anything that has preceded it on the Irish Jazz scene, Fuzzy Logic Ensemble conjures beautiful imagery and surprises at every turn.
Formed in 2002 as the brainchild of composer Dr Dylan Rynhart, Fuzzy Logic has grown and adapted to a changing music and a changing world. Promising young musicians, who were just starting their careers almost 2 decades ago, have since become leaders and role models on their instruments both in Ireland and across Europe, forming the backbone of this exceptional group. The compositions are rich and intricate, juxtaposing the familiar with the unexpected. Rynhart’s long study of speech inspires the rolling melodies, but equally the music is expressive, personal and at times political.
“Fuzzy Logic now rate among the most daring and original musical ensembles working in Ireland today” – The Irish Times
“Inspired execution and inventive soloing” – The Journal of Music
When the Dust Settles
This brand new ten-piece ensemble directed by drummer/composer, Stephen Davis was created specifically for Brilliant Corners after an open call for young musicians. The music reflects the dysfunctional, chaotic and unsettling times we live in, while at the same time offering hope. Drawing on ideas heard in the music of Sun Ra, Art Ensemble of Chicago and Ornette Coleman; When the Dust Settles is big, bold and ready to shake things up.
