“I am a music maker and music teacher based in Dublin, exploring the use of non-traditional notation, particularly animated notation, to create musical collaboration. Animated graphic notation consists of moving shapes and symbols which suggest musical ideas or gestures to be interpreted by a performer or performers. I have been working with this type of notation since 2008, through live performances, installations, workshops and presentations including the International Symposium of Electronic Arts in Istanbul. This way of working has allowed me to collaborate with a wide range of amateur and professional ensembles including The National Youth Orchestra of Ireland, The a.P.A.t.T Orchestra (liverpool) and Impulse (Texas U.S.A.) “
