October 2019

October started with the Irish leg of Chris Robert’s Adra album tour, playing my piece Hiraeth am nefoedd in Limerick, Kilkenny, Belfast and Dublin. The piece was also broadcast on the Sound Out programme on Lyric FM. The album had its Irish launch at the Contemporary Music Centre in Dublin, with reflections from composer and guitarist Benjamin Dwyer, who gave the album an extremely positive review. PANIC Music Ensemble performed two of my pieces, Stutter and a new work, Where I go, I hear the noise in Maynooth University and Dublin City University Chapel – recordings below. We also filmed a short promo video for the ensemble, which can be seen on the PANIC page of my website. For November, I’m looking forward to working with the Jewish choir Mosaic Voices, who have commissioned me to write a new work in Hebrew for Holocaust Memorial Day 2020.
