In 2013 Mathias Baumann (composer/musician), Sinéad Cullen (visual artist) and Jo Cummins (visual artist) decided to try a creative experiment. Sinéad created a painting; RaÍces del Mundo, which was passed on to Mathias, who composed a piece of music based on his interpretation of the painting. The composition, entitled Nucleus was then forwarded to Jo. Not having seen Sinéad's original painting, Jo who has synaesthesia painted the colours and patterns she saw when she listened to Nucleus. The title for her painting 4.09 comes from the moment in the composition when Jo saw the image she painted. For more information about this project click here....
In late August 2015 I embarked on a 5 day hiking trip through the Wicklow Mountains with a friend of mine. It was an amazing experience which brought us very close to nature and far away from our day-to-day way of living. On the way we took some pictures of the stunning Wicklow Mountain National Park which are showcased in a music video of my original composition Tango Melancholy.
