Percussionist and composer Éamonn Cagney recieves Arts Council of Ireland Agility Award
I am delighted to be funded by the Arts Council of Ireland, to write some new music. This comes in the form of an Agility award, and I will be creating percussion and drum-based elctronic and acoustic original music. Super excited! I started working with Ableton Live last year and will be making music that puts live percussion sounds, electronic drum loops and other stuff together.
When I was 18 and moved to Dublin I was all about electronic music, before hand drumming came into my life. Once Djembe appeared it took me on a completely different journey for years, so this is a good full circle right now, combining hand-drumming and midi beats!
Extracts of the music I am making will be shared here and on: https://soundcloud.com/eamonncagney
