I am a composer, viola player and artistic director from Dublin, Ireland.
I write notated instrumental music and experimental/conceptual pieces, and I’m increasingly interested in trying to create overwhelming work with constant extreme jumps in texture.
I direct Kirkos, an experimental new music ensemble which specialises in Happenings and multi-sensory performances.
And I play viola (and other things, more and more now…)
CURRENTLY THINKING ABOUT:
[bringing DIY into art] [a shorter organ piece] [inventing a musical umbrella that’s different from this one] [Jennifer Walshe’s The New Discipline Manifesto] [novel sounds in String Quartets…….] [David Shields’ Reality Hunger] [Bruckner (always!)] [smellovision] [learning viola da gamba] [humour & self-reference in Andy Ingamells’ Piano Recital] [new Irish viola music] [Introduction to Political Philosophy] [Daniel Dennett’s Consciousness Explained] [trying to beat Civ 5 on Deity level]
