Recent victor of the ‘Clash of the Titans’ world freestyle championship in Berlin, Dublin born and based multi-instrumentalist, turntablist and sample artist Djackulate (aka Jack Dempsey Mc Mahon) joins forces with H-ci (aka Shane O’Donovan) to present a unique collaboration at SPECTRUM 2019.

McMahon, a musical polymath, has a wide range of influences stemming from a lifetime of mining records for odd samples as a champion turntablist , in addition to his saxophone, uilleann pipes, kaval, musical saw, and others performing in a wide range of musical contexts. Most recently, McMahon begun to distil these musical experiences it to performances focused around a turntable, and with striking results.

McMahon is a keen and creative collaborator, working with jazz heavyweights , Jeff Ballard, and Tim Berne, scoring and performing for theatre projects, and collaborating with improvising musicians and artists around Europe.


H-ci

For this SPECTRUM outing Djackulate joins forces with longtime colleague and musical chameleon electronic composer and jazz drummer H-ci (Shane O'Donovan). This innovative duo have a musical relationship spanning many projects over the past decade, most notably in OKO, an eclectic quartet that runs the gamut from delicately sculpted electro-acoustic shapes to gritty streetwise funk.

H-ci, aka Shane O'Donovan, is a Dublin based electronic music composer/ Jazz drummer. Shane's music is heavily influenced by electronic music artists such as Aphex Twin, Autechre, and Boards of Canada, but also incorporates elements of contemporary Jazz and avant-garde. Shane's love for both synthesizers and drumming can be clearly heard in his music. Complex layers of rhythm are created through the use of drum machines as well as live recording of acoustic drums, while the melodic content is almost exclusively synthesizer based.

Playing drums and electronics, O’Donovan is a member of OKO and Dublin City Jazz Orchestra, and formerly a member of the Louis Stewart Quartet. He has also worked with the likes of Kit Downes, Til Cohen, Tim Berne and Jamie Oehlers, to name a few.

Margie Jean Lewis

Support on the night come from Australian-born Margie Jean Lewis, an inventive musician who has called Dublin her home now for 10 years. She is known for her intricately crafted ethereal soundscapes, lush songs of emotional depth and pumping electronic beats. She fuses her rich bewildering vocals with violin, zither and electronics to create a world of sound to get lost in.
