Traditional Music, Technology and Experimentalism
During three years as Rosamund Harding Research Fellow in Music at Newnham College Cambridge, Dr Úna Monaghan has explored a range of topics on the edges of Irish traditional music, and how it engages with new technologies and experimental practices. This talk will describe a range of her ongoing projects including: composition for traditional musician and computer, composition with AI, and her research on gender and Irish traditional music carried out during the FairPlé movement. Úna is a harper, composer and sound engineer, and performs with harp and computer. She looks after live front of house sound for leading traditional musicians at home and abroad, and released an album of her compositions for harp and electronics, called “For” in 2018. She received the Liam O’Flynn Award from the National Concert Hall and Arts Council Ireland in 2019.
