AONARACHT is a groundbreaking combination of Irish traditional and experimental electronic music.
A collection of original pieces for solo traditional musicians and computer.
A completely new sound world created by Úna Monaghan and recorded by six of Ireland’s foremost performers. Each piece is a unique combination of the traditional musician, their instrument, and electronics.

These recordings explore how technology can be used to sound the world of traditional music beyond the tunes. A custom made interactive relationship for each musician with the computer, involving fixed media, electroacoustic sound, field recordings, improvisation and live electronics.

Each piece has a different theme, exploring Irish traditional music and poetry, artificial intelligence, feminism, instrumentation and community. Featuring text by Maureen Boyle, Ciaran Carson and Cathal Ó Searcaigh.
