About Siobhan's commission
Over the course of this new commission, Siobhan will be developing a work for the harpist Úna Monaghan with visuals and live electronics based on the myth of the Abhartach, a tyrannical Irish chieftain who lured his victims with his harp music.
Úna Monaghan is a harper, composer, researcher and sound artist from Belfast. Her recent work has combined traditional music with bronze sculpture, sound art and movement sensors. Her compositions have been presented on BBC and RTÉ television and radio, and in theatre productions, festivals and conferences internationally. She performs with harp and computer, and released an album of her compositions for Irish harp and electronics, named For in 2018.
We will keep updating this page with images and news and will be posting regularly on our social media channels as work progresses.
