Irish Composers on Irish Music: Ben Dwyer on Paul Hayes

Benjamin Dwyer

In our first edition of a new series, Irish composer, guitarist and musicologist BEN DWYER analyses the work of Japanese-based composer Paul Hayes, discussing the disintegration of sounds and gestures that are a hallmark of Hayes' music, with a particular focus on Hayes' 1990 work, 'Sonata al Niente'.

Filmed in the Irish Georgian Society in Dublin, 27th March 2015.
