Meet the Composer: Dennis Wyers

We profile some of the composers who have been accepted for CMC representation over the last year.

Dennis Wyers completed a masters degree in composition at WIT with Dr Eric Sweeney. He writes music influenced by jazz, contemporary classical and electroacoustic music. In 2011, he founded the Earpiece collective to present concerts of spectral music. He is currently pursuing a PhD in Machine listening and learning for interactive audio-based music systems at the University of Limerick.

His work Aurora Borealis (2010) for female voices  was premiered by Blue Bulb Music Vocal Ensemble with conductor Emma O’Halloran at an ICC concert in the Kevin Barry Room, National Concert Hall on 28 June 2010.
