Biography

David Bremner is the composer of a diverse range of innovative works which have been performed frequently in Ireland and abroad. Originally from West Cumbria, UK, he moved to Ireland in 1999. In 2013 he completed a Ph.D in Composition at DIT with Gráinne Mulvey. He co-directs the music/text production company Béal.

David has had works performed by, amongst others, RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra, Paul Roe, Elizabeth Hilliard, Mark Redmond, New Dublin Voices, Quasars Ensemble and avantgarde tirol, and has featured in festivals such as Ostrava New Music Days, New Music Dublin, Hilltown Festival, Pipeworks, Béal Festival, and avantgarde tirol. He founded the music/theatre improvisation collective TheOpenRehearsals; in 2012 this ensemble received an Arts Council Opera Development award to further develop their work. His music is represented by the Contemporary Music Centre (www.cmc.ie).

Recent composition projects include a work for the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra, a work for banjo and live electronics (facilitated by an Arts Council Bursary Award), and a large-scale song-cycle entitled Logical Fallacies setting the poetry of Irish minimalist poet Billy Mills, written for soprano Elizabeth Hilliard and violist Andreea Banciu. Loop Walks, a work of scored poetry by Bremner and Mills was published in 2013 by hardPressed Poetry. With the piper Mark Redmond, David in 2014 released the CD l'air du temps/the spirit of the times, a suite of new compositions and arrangements for pipe organ and uilleann pipes creatively exploring the links between French Baroque music and Irish traditional music. This has provoked considerable critical acclaim and media attention, and one of the tracks was selected by the Contemporary Music Centre to feature on their promotional CD New Music:New Ireland 2.

An in-depth interview with David was featured on John Schaefer's WNYC/NYPR New Sounds programme in April 2015; he has also featured on RTÉ's Nova and Arena programmes.
