Accent, alliteration, assonance, consonance, euphony…a sound device is a resource used by writers to convey and reenforce meaning, or experience through the skilful use of sound.

From Homer to Ezra Pound, from Virgil to Camus, the use as well as the description of sound has been a constant presence in both poetry and fiction.
Sound Devices is a new series of curated monthly events setting out to explore the creative connection between sound and literature with an exciting program taking place in historical Rathmines Library. Organised in celebration of the Library’s 100th Anniversary and curated by sound artist La Cosa Preziosa, each monthly event will present a varied and thought-provoking programme of Irish and International soundscape miniatures sent in from around the world.
