Whelan’s Upstairs • Wed 15th November 2023
Anna Mullarkey is an award-winning composer and performer from Galway, whose music weaves electronics with piano and voice. Having grown up in the West of Ireland, Anna draws inspiration from the sea for her compositions.The Irish Times called her “phenomenal” and Irish Theatre Magazine described her music as “if a sultry ménage of Björk/Billie Holiday/Philip Glass got together at the Wickerman Festival.” Her original score for the film The Passion (2021) has won awards in Ireland and Europe.
Anna’s debut album, Falling, released in 2023, is all about falling in and out of love. It is a shapeshifting soundscape, with sometimes comforting and sometimes haunting melodies that evoke summer afternoons and winter evenings, that speak to a haunted past and a radiant present. The album has received critical acclaim and national radio play.
Anna is currently working on scoring for theater and film blending electronics with classical music.
