I was born in Dublin Ireland and I am now living in California.
Among other things-
I write small ensemble and electroacoustic pieces, create interactive sound and video performances/situations/installations, I have written and collaborated in the production of sound and music for theater, a little radio, and occasional fit in some performances on various instruments augmented with live electronics. I am currently a lecturer at CCRMA (Stanford University) and I collaborate with several research groups on a variety of sound/music/audio topics.
This site has links to audio and video documentation of some of my pieces. I have a large amount of documentation still to be edited and posted… this will happen when I run out of new ideas for pieces… It also contains links to some research papers I wrote or assisted with.
I went to University College Cork Ireland between 2004-2008 (BMus), Wesleyan University in Connecticut until 2010 (MA), and I then completed my DMA at Stanford University in 2016. These schools made me write lots of music so that I might put additional letters before and/or after my name. After so many years of writing this music it’s hard to stop … So this site functions as a repository of items documenting this ongoing obsession… but it’s not the real thing… go see live music, art and performance, but turn your phone/camera off. Why? Because there’s always somebody there whose job it is to document a performance so you don’t have to… plus people are bigger and more interesting when not viewed through your phone/camera screen.
