Artist Description: 

Linda Buckley is an Irish composer who has written extensively for orchestra (BBC Symphony Orchestra, Dresdner Sinfoniker, RTé National Symphony Orchestra, Irish Chamber Orchestra), and has a particular interest in merging her classical training with the worlds of post punk, folk and ambient electronica. She is ‘one of the leading figures in the thriving Irish new music scene’ (Christopher Fox, Tempo) with her work being described as ‘exquisite’ (Philip Clark, Gramophone) ‘strange and beautiful’ (Richard Dyer, Boston Globe), and ‘fantastically brutal, reminiscent of the glitch music of acts such as Autechre’ (Liam Cagney, Composing the Island). Collaborations include work with experimental folk duo Anna & Elizabeth, Crash Ensemble, Liz Roche Dance Company, Iarla O’Lionaird, Icebreaker and Ensemble Mise-En. Linda studied Music at University College Cork, holds a Masters in Music & Media Technologies and PhD in Composition from Trinity College Dublin, a Fulbright Scholarship to New York and lectures in Composition at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
