BRIAN IRVINE [WINNER OF 2006 BRITISH COMPOSER AWARD]
Born in Belfast, composer Brian Irvine went to Berklee College of Music in Boston, Surrey University and University of Ulster. His music reflects an obsessive interest in opposing musical genres from punk, contemporary classical and jazz. His huge body of work includes solo, ensemble, orchestral, jazz, opera, electronica as well as theatre music and film scores.
"Exhilarating stuff... Brian Irvine's body of work is an example of the musical treasures half hidden in the cracks between the categories... smart music in a culture that often over rewards the dumb and/or the well connected" (The Guardian)
"Brians musical mind is a microcosm of huge energy and chaos, intricately engineered to blow your head off!" (BBC Magazine)
