Emma O’Halloran is an Irish composer and musician whose work moves freely between acoustic and electronic forces. Currently a doctoral student at Princeton University, Emma has written for folk musicians, chamber ensembles, turntables, laptop orchestra, along with film and theatre. Her work has been performed at the Bang on a Can Summer Music Festival, and MATA Festival, and she has collaborated with artists such as Crash Ensemble, PRISM Saxophone Quartet, and the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra. Emma considers much of her music to be reflective, often trying to map real or imagined moments in time to gain a deeper understanding of her own personal experiences. When not composing, she can be found hiking, traveling, practicing yoga, and playing on aerial hoops and silks.
