22 - 31 Oct 2009. Now in its 8th year, the Dublin Electronic Arts Festival (DEAF) presents an annual public platform for the electronic arts in Dublin, promoting this musical art form to new and ever-growing Irish audiences. The 2009 festival programme promises 180 events in 45 music venues including galleries, unconventional spaces, clubs and bars.
A highlight of the festival includes The Second Square to None collective who present the second stage of the Ten Second Rule project on 25 October. Over 40 Irish producers and musicians were asked to submit a ten second long original audio composition, resulting in a collection of sounds that have been made available to turntable group Vince MackMahon, analog synth group PushMoveClick, electro-acoustic improvisers FYED, digital audio manglers BrownCloud and Dubreak. Euphiophone / Melesta will also present an original set.
