Dublin, County Dublin
Stephen Roddy is an Irish composer and musician exploring themes of duality, unity and reconciliation through sound. His collaborations with Cristina Goletti and Nick Bryson’s much-celebrated Legitimate Bodies Dance Company have been performed at Birr Theatre and Arts Centre and his most recent dance collaboration with Amy Prendergast has been performed at the Irish World Music Academy in Limerick. He has performed at home and internationally in his capacities of guitarist and DJ.
Stephen’s music seeks to dissolve the apparent duality between the visceral physicality of traditionally instrumented musical performance and the disembodiment of live computer music at the level of the composition.
His most recent independently released collection “Alethia” explores the reconciliation of such and has achieved national radio play and steady rotation on web-radio. His current compositional efforts are focused on embodied compositional strategies for computer music and sonification.
Stephen holds a B.Sc in Music Media and Performance Technology and an M.A in Music Technology and is pursuing a Ph.D in Sonification.
