3epkano are a Dublin based collective, formed by Cameron Doyle and Matthew Nolan, who are dedicated to producing original soundtracks to silent, avant-garde, and contemporary cinema
Since 2004, the group have played numerous headline shows in both Ireland and the US to critical acclaim. They have also been commissioned to produce new music for a number of prestigious institutions including The National Gallery of Ireland, Dublin Fringe Festival, Film Society of Lincoln Centre and the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) in New York.
In 2008 the group took responsibility for curating the new alternative music strand at the Kilkenny Arts Festival, a programme which included Mercury Rev, Spiritualized, and Lisa Hannigan to name but a few.
They returned to BAM in 2010 to premier their score for Diary of a Lost Girl and also performed earlier this year at the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC to launch their winter movie calendar. Most recently they performed on the main stage at the Electric Picnic.
"Full of urgent percussion and sweeping strings, [the performance] owes a great
deal to pioneering Montreal post-rockers Godspeed You Black Emperor…..the overall
effect was mesmerising."
Davin O’Dwyer - The Irish Times
"It’s very hard to describe, but for such a feather-light sound to mesmerise as it did
was one of the most fascinating concert experiences I’ve had."
Hillary White – State
"Conjuring an atmosphere not too far from Mogwai's signature dynamics, only with more
emphasis on melody and fewer concerted efforts to terrify the listener."
Tim Smyth - Hot Press
