Rosie Murphy will compose a new contemporary work for concert harp and flute. Inspired by her interest in traditional Irish, baroque, and minimalist music, her composition will include aspects of all three styles while exploring extended techniques.
The music will consist of acoustic and electronic elements as it navigates new musical boundaries. Commencing her residency in early July, Rosie will work with Dublin-based flautist Martina O’ Connell. They will showcase the new work in dlr LexIcon Studio on August 5th.
This is an informal performance where the musicians will share their process and give a taster of what is to come on Culture Night in September, when they present the finished work.
