Thursday, October 25th, 8 pm: Trevor Joyce and the Max Middle Sound Project.

Co-founder of the New Writers’ Press in Dublin, Trevor Joyce has published eleven volumes of poetry, including The Poems of Sweeny Peregrine (1976), his working of the middle-Irish Buile Suibhne, and stone floods (1995), which was nominated for the Irish Times Literature Prize for Poetry. Founder and director of SoundEye: The Cork International Poetry Festival, Joyce was a Fulbright Scholar for the year 2002-2003. In 2004 he was elected a member of Aosdána, the Irish Affiliation of Artists, and was the first writer to be awarded a fellowship by the Ballinglen Arts Foundation.

Founded in 2004 and consisting of three prominent Ottawa-area artists, John Lavery, Max Middle and Jason Sonier, the Max Middle Sound Project is an interdisciplinary collaboration committed to the integration of poetry, sound poetry and music, incorporating elements of theatre and performance art as ancillary expression. The ensemble has performed in the Ottawa Fringe Festival, the Ottawa International Writers Festival and in the Dusty Owl, Tree and Grey Borders reading series.
