An Irish researcher and composer
Studied Indian classical music in a traditional context for almost twenty years, with Sougata Roy Chowdhury in Kolkata and more recently with UK based sarodiya K. Sridhar. He has been increasingly interested in exploring new musical contexts for the instrument beyond Hindustani music. In particular, he has researched the performance potential of the sarode in Irish traditional music (Noone 2016), in electroacoustic composition (Noone 2020) and in ‘free’ improvisation (Noone 2021). My research has led to the design to two custom instruments and numerous albums.
