An Foras Feasa post-Doctoral Research Fellowship
Ian has been awarded a post-Doctoral Research Fellowship. Funded by An Foras Feasa, the 18-month post is in conjunction with Dundalk Institute of Technology's Department of Music and Creative Media. Ian's research subject is Performative Gestures used by traditional Irish musicians, with a view to identifying, isolating and analysing specific gestures used by two musicians - sean-nós singer Lorcán Mac Mathúna and fiddler Gerry O'Connor - and eventually using them as the architectural basis of new works.
