Boo! Yip that time o the year. Super psyched that Mantua is ringin in Halloween with us. Mantua is the improvised music project of Elaine Malone.
Mantua is influenced by the occult and environmental decline, symbolism in the forms of Virgin Mary holograms and the decay of nature.
The new Mantua ep will be hitting Bandcamp this weekend.. more info soon.

Also expect apparitions of pure haunted ghouls playing spooky sounds.

📢 WE got another new show for ya!!📢⁠ Tonight at 8pm⁠ Cork Improvised Music Club - CIMC is a residency that has been run since 2013 by Dan Walsh in association with plugd records in Cork City. In that time it has aimed to provide a home for the city's community of real-time music makers and to draw on Cork's long history of experimental music as well as providing a place for improvisers from further afield to create. This show will feature recordings from and archive dating back to 2015 at Gulpd Cafe and up to more recent times at Plugd in The Roundy. Each month will feature music that was performed once and never again. 📻 listen.dublindigitalradio.com
