Music for viola and electronics performed by Nathan Sherman as part of Zeitgeist Irland 24 by Nicole Lizée (Canada), Karin Rehnqvist (Sweden),  Jonathan Nangle (Ireland), Sam Perkin (Ireland), Linda Buckley (Ireland), and Benjamin Broening (USA) will be premiered at Hošek Contemporary. Inspired by psychological shifts and states of flux, these six works are a journey through soundscapes for curious ears.

American-born violist Nathan Sherman has been based in Dublin since 1999 and enjoys a career collaborating with other adventurous musicians. His curiosity and eclecticism allows him to present work ranging from Schütz and Purcell, to experimenting with heavy metal and aquariums. Nathan is a tireless commissioner and his “commanding and assured” performances (Journal of Music) have brought him around the world.

As founding member and Artistic Director of the acclaimed chamber group Ficino Ensemble, Nathan performs a vast amount of music and has released two albums. Folk Songs included works by Luciano Berio and was described as “bewitching new interpretations by the Irish chamber group”. (Guardian) The album was included in the Guardian’s Top 10 of 2022 and best of Bandcamp’s contemporary classical. The group also enjoy creating opportunities for younger composers through their yearly workshop series.
Nathan has premiered over 100 works and his work has been presented on radio stations worldwide including WNYC, BBC3, Radio France and RTÈ.
