Úna Keane returns to SJQ with her particular brand of ambient neoclassicism on Wednesday 16th February. For this intimate audio / visual show she’ll be sharing songs from her upcoming LP, due for release later this year.
A composer & producer, she blends piano, electronics, movement & film; recurring themes in her work link nature, music & science.
The Dubliner put out critically-acclaimed Live album ‘Collaborations’ on limited edition Vinyl last summer. Named Irish Album of the Year by Broadsheet.ie, it garnered a glowing 8.5/10 review from Hot Press and 4 stars from The Irish Times. Lauren Murphy, reviewing for The Irish Times drew comparisons to the work of Ólafur Arnalds and Max Richter, citing her use of looped tracks and field recordings. Of her work over the past few years, Tony Clayton-Lea has named her “probably one of the best exponents of instrumental music that comes from a quiet, calm place”.
Her music has received regular airplay on RTE Radio 1, RTE 2FM, Lyric FM, BBC Across the Line and on Martin Bridgeman’s KCLR FM show “Ceol Anocht”.
