Ahead of the premiere of a new work for singer Eimear Quinn, the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra and the Dublin Laptop Orchestra, composer Emma O'Halloran talks about the holy grail of composing, city life and where to begin when writing for orchestra.
This week I caught up with the Irish composer Emma O’Halloran to talk about the upcoming premiere of her piece Whisper City. The piece, written for symphony orchestra, voice and laptop orchestra, is described as ‘exploring the “secret music” of Dublin streets’. The new work will be premiered by the singer Eimear Quinn with the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra and the Dublin Laptop Orchestra at the National Concert Hall, Dublin on Saturday, 27 October.
