Modern View of Ancient Ireland
'Modern View of Ancient Ireland' is a series of works for saxophone and electronics by Irish composers, commissioned by Robert. Each piece in the series deals with a different aspect of Ireland’s rich ancient history and culture.
Describing the beautiful landscapes that surround the island, to the legends and folklore children are taught from a young age, this project is a very personal one to Robert. The addition of electronics along with the personal visions of the contemporary Irish composers provides a modern view of these ancient themes.
This project has been presented at the Bloomsbury Festival 2021, London, Crescent Festival of Contemporary Irish Music 2021, Wexford, and Culture Night, Dublin, 2021.

‘Between Stone and Sun (After Newgrange)’
