Emma O'Halloran
Composer

Biography
Emma O’Halloran is an Irish composer and vocalist, intertwining acoustic and electronic music, and writing for folk musicians, chamber ensembles, turntables, laptop orchestra, symphony orchestra, film, and theatre. For her efforts, she was praised by I Care If You Listen editor-in-chief Amanda Cook for writing “some of the most unencumbered, authentic, and joyful music that I have heard in recent years.” O’Halloran won numerous competitions, including National Sawdust’s inaugural Hildegard competition and the Next Generation award from Beth Morrison Projects. O’Halloran’s music aims to capture the human experience, exploring complex emotions felt in specific moments in time. This approach has a wide audience: her work was featured at the international Classical NEXT conference in Rotterdam, the Prototype Festival in New York, Bang on a Can Summer Music Festival, and MATA Festival. Additionally, her music has been performed by Crash Ensemble, Contemporaneous, the Refugee Orchestra Project, PRISM Saxophone Quartet, and the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra, among others. Emma holds a PhD in Music Composition from Princeton University and is currently working on her first full-length opera. www.emma-ohalloran.com
