Yellow is a quartet for two violinists and two dancers which I have been working on with choreographer Laura Murphy. Laura and I met on a residency at the Tyrone Guthrie Centre last year, and became intrigued by the potential temporal and metric crossovers in the scoring of dance and music. Yellow is the result of our experimentation – the piece was performed as a work-in-progress showing at Cork Midsummer Festival 2017 with the following ensemble;
Aoife Ní Bhriain – violin
Larissa O’Grady – violin
Anna Kaszuba – dancer
Siobhán Ní Dhuinnín – dancer
We hope to expand Yellow into a full-scale work in 2018.
