It’s a little over two years since I started working for the Contemporary Music Centre. I arrived out of college and lucked my way into a really interesting job filming and editing videos and recordings of concerts and interviews of contemporary music: composers, performers and organisers. I’ve got to work with some great people during my time there and meet lots of interesting people as well. I was also privileged to work with a great group of people in my time at the Contemporary Music Centre, some of whom have move on and some who are still there. In no particular order thanks to Jonathan, Caitríona, Keith, Evonne, Eve, Sinéad, Karen, Emma, Ben and Sam. I’m now leaving to move to the Netherlands and start a Master in Composition and as I move on to pastures new I wanted to share some of the work which I’m proudest of from my time at the Contemporary Music Centre.

Culture Night

This video is an overview of the Contemporary Music Centre’s event for Culture Night 2013. The event ran for 8 hours on 19 September as part of Culture Night 2013, and included performances from composers Kerry Hagan, John Godfrey, Thomas McConville and Rob Canning. I’ve put together several video like this, covering events, workshops and performances, in my time at the Contemporary Music Centre but this one was particularly enjoyable due to the diversity of different music and ideas on the night.
