Crash Works 

Here they are! Our 5 brilliant Crash Works creators:

Laura Hyland
Anselm McDonnell
Una Monaghan
Cathal O’Riordan
Amy Rooney

Selected from an open call, these 5 music creators, all at a pivotal stage in their careers, have been commissioned to write a new work for Crash in partnership with New Music Dublin. 

Over the next two years, Crash creators will take part in our new professional development initiative Crash Works, benefitting from artistic and professional support and development through workshops, investigation and experimentation with Crash Ensemble musicians and our team of creative minds.

We look forward to welcoming Laura, Anselm, Una, Cathal and Amy.  Exciting times ahead!

113 applications were received for the Crash Works initiative, across all genres of music, representing the incredible diversity and range of work being created in Ireland right now. 

We were blown away by the number of applications - thank you to all that applied!

We wanted to offer an extra commission opportunity, alongside Crash Works, and have selected these 5 music creators to write a 2 minute postcard piece for Crash Ensemble.
