About Siobhan's commission
Over the course of this new commission, Siobhan will be developing a work entitled 'Pilgrimage' which is the first in a series of planned works based on the works of the writer, artist and cartographer Tim Robinson. Based on material from Stones of Aran: Pilgrimage, the piece will be a soundscape of Robinsons clockwise ("the circuit that blesses") walk around the bays, storm-beaches and cliffs of Arainn the largest of the Aran islands. Composed for the harpist Úna Monagahan, the work will also incorporate live electronics and field recordings.
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.
