Tradition Now: Úna Monaghan

Composer, harper, sound engineer and Liam O’Flynn Award recipient, Úna Monaghan presents a concert of her compositions for harp and electronics, which fuse experimental and Irish traditional music with soundscape, electronics and improvisation. Úna released an album of her compositions for harp and electronics, named “For” in 2018.

Her work has combined traditional music with bronze sculpture, sound art and movement sensors. Úna has held artist residencies at the Centre Culturel Irlandais Paris, the Institute for the Public Life of Arts and Ideas Montréal, and the Future Music Lab at the Atlantic Music Festival, USA. Úna also works as a sound engineer specialising in traditional music, and experimental, live electronic and multichannel music. The resultant sound is a merging of melodies, field recordings and life stories. This concert marks the beginning of her residency at the NCH as part of the Liam O’Flynn award.
