Having attended a concert of Shaun Davey's music in the Waterfront on St Patrick's Day in 2008, I was fascinated to discover an extended interview with the composer on Arts Extra last Monday. The recording will expire on Listen Again on Monday evening, so you don't have long to catch it if you're interested.
Not classically trained in music, Davey brings a different set of rules to his music. Perhaps a greater understanding of drama and emotion than other who are more focussed on the layer complexity between the parts.
Brilliant, brilliant music ... and interesting commentary from Marie-Louise Muir in conversation with Shaun Davey.
