Brona Martin is an Electroacoustic composer and sound artist from Banagher, Co. Offaly, Ireland. Brona has recently completed a PhD in Electroacoustic Composition under the supervision of Professor David Berezan at NOVARS Research Centre, University of Manchester. Her research interests include narrative in Electroacoustic music, soundscape composition and acoustic ecology. Her site specific works composed in stereo, 5.1 and 8-channel have included the creative exploration of soundscapes from Ireland, Manchester, West Coast Australia, Spain and Germany. Her works have been performed internationally at EMS, ACMC, ICMC, NYCEMF, ISSTA, NOISEFLOOR, Balance/Unbalance, SSSP, iFIMPaC and MANTIS.
An ongoing strand of the ‘Full of Noises’ programme focuses on multi-channel diffusion and spatial audio work so we are really excited to be able to commission Brona Martin to work with the Hub in Workington the UK’s only public outdoor 3D ambisonic sound system.
Brona is composing a new Electroacoustic work in response to the industry, community and the environment around Workington, an industrial town on the edge of the Lake District. Her new work will be accompanied by a programme of fixed media multi-channel pieces by women composers, curated by Full of Noises with Brona. Following the premiere in Barrow the programme will go on a short tour to Lancaster, Leicester and London.
This work is made possible with financial support from PRS for Music Foundation‘s Women Make Music programme.
