Grá agus Bás
Crash Ensemble featuring Iárla O'Lionaird singing traditional sean nos. Grá agus Bás translates variously as hunger and yearning, even love and lust, depending on the context.

You can find another excerpt on Donnacha's MySpace, a great video clip on YouTube and the full compisition online at WNYC New York Public Radio, who commissioned the work.

Listen and enjoy.

Donnacha was born in Dublin, studied music at Trinity College, the University of Illinois and in Paris and the Hague. He founded Crash Ensemble, who recently played with Terry Riley at his first concert in Ireland. Donnacha has received commissions from RTÉ (Irish state radio), the BBC, WNYC New York Public Radio and numerous individual ensembles. Donnacha was artistic director of the 2006 RTÉ Living Music Festival which celebrated the music of Steve Reich. He was elected to Aosdána, Ireland’s prestigious state-sponsored academy of creative artists, in 2005. He continues to experiment, innovate and create some of the the most striking modern composition in the world. For more info, please visit his site
