A couple of months back Liam had an article published by Sinfini Classical. Entitled ‘When Techno Meets Classical’, the article uses the release of techno artist Max Richter’s Vivaldi Recomposed album on Deutsche Gramophone to explore other crossovers between these two very different musical genres. You can read the article (and listen to its clips) here: http://blog.sinfinimusic.com/classical-connections-3-when-techno-meets-classical/
The December issue of Opera Magazine featured a review by Liam of the American composer Robert Ashley’s opera Vidas Perfectas. A translation into Spanish of Ashley’s Perfect Lives, originally broadcast on Channel 4 in the early 1980s, Vidas Perfectas was performed recently at Hyde Park’s Serpentine Gallery.
And an extract from a short story by Liam was recently read out on national radio in Ireland. The story, entitled ‘The Party’, featured on 2 January on RTE Radio One’s flagship arts show Arena. You can listen to the extract at this link, starting around 37:10 in: http://tinyurl.com/af8jzpk
