Dublin, County Dublin
Úna Keane is a Pianist + Composer from Dublin, Ireland. Her latest project is an Album of Piano Solo compositions which combine free-form minimalism & classical cross-over. The Album was conceived and composed over 3 trips to Paris between 2015 / 2016 while staying at Le Centre Culturel Irlandais. Back home in Ireland, 2 x week-long stays in the wilds of the Beara Peninsula & long walks in Dublin’s Phoenix Park with her Irish Terrier Indie provided further inspiration.
Her use of repeated motifs and cyclical patterns results in music that gets up close and personal whilst also conjuring up wide cinematic landscape. Written in tempo rubato, with tonal influences from both the traditional Irish music and classical genres, this is music that is imbued with space and room to breath.
"Úna's free-flowing minimalist compositions carry the listener to magical places...never forced, never hurried - these gorgeous motifs gently envelop you and provide comfort in a crazy world"
- Carl Corcoran, The Blue of the Night
Album out April 2017
