CIPHER: Hip Hop's Third Space - live music and musicology
6pm | Outside Student Centre (subject to weather)
UCC Professor Griff Rollefson and Cork artist/educator Garry McCarthy present a group of young musicians from Knocknaheeny’s Kabin Studio (Music Generation Cork City). The collaboration is part of Rollefson’s €2m EU research initiative, CIPHER, which looks at how this form of street art takes the best of past and present, creating a “third space” that is beholden neither to traditional orthodoxies nor to the soulless neoliberal future. As James Joyce put it in 1916: “You talk to me of nationality, language, religion. I shall try to fly by those nets.” That’s flippin’ the script! THAT’S HIP HOP! Includes live performances, video, and media analyses.
