Seán Clancy performs an extended drone-based work for analog synthesizers and projected text throughout the UK in 2018. Through the marriage of continuous focused sound, pithy texts, and defamiliarisation, this work calls attention to the diverse range of journeys that Irish people have undertaken to England, both historically and in more recent times.
Seán Clancy is an Irish composer who writes music for electronic and acoustic instruments. Through defamiliarisation, repetition, fragmentation, and the use of drones, his music tries to come to terms with our own existence. He lives in Dublin and is a senior lecturer in composition at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire in the UK.
