Meet Emma O'Halloran

Congratulations to Emma O'Halloran on being announced as one of the first winners of National Sawdust's new Hildegard Competition for emerging women and non-binary composers! We're very excited to be giving the Australian premiere of Emma's work '99% Invisible' at Iniquitous Creatures, and our pianist Jacob wrote a little something about his first encounter with Emma's music:

"I first met Emma in 2013 at the Bang on a Can Summer Festival, where we were both participants. We immediately hit it off, and talked at length about her experience in writing for laptop orchestras and Irish folk musicians. Her music often blurs the lines between acoustic and electronic sources, and struck me as being simultaneously esoteric and familiar."
