50:50 Series

This is a very exciting new series of events consisting of equal programming representation for male and female composers to promote a greater inclusion of female composers in contemporary music. The inaugural event will take place at an Irish or British institution in winter of 2017. Further information on this groundbreaking series of events will soon follow in the news section.

Leigh Landy's Radio Series

In association with the University of Ulster, Brian is currently assisting Leigh Landy in the compiling of source material for the Irish edition off his radio series of works. 

Composition

Brian is currently working on a piece for soprano and live electronics. This work will investigate the application of binaural beating in timbre modulation procedures. Through the live analysis of periodic frequency content, the performer of the live electronics can control levels of sensory dissonance, which are dependent on factors relating to the acoustics of the performance space, among others.

AV Installation

An audiovisual installation entitled Hear Your Own Ears Play a Tune is currently under construction and will hopefully be exhibited in a gallery in the coming months. Through this installation, users will be able to learn about and experience otoacoustic emissions through both pre-defined and user-performed audio demonstrations.
