Collaborative Music Making

About

Shane Mc Kenna is a music maker and music teacher based in Wicklow, Ireland, exploring the use of non-traditional music notation, particularly animated notation, to create musical collaboration. Shane has been working with this type of notation since 2008, through live performances, installations, workshops and presentations including the International Symposium of Electronic Arts in Istanbul and Tenor (IRCAM). 

Shane has used animated notation to create a new system of music education called DabbledooMusic. The system exists as a fully interactive online resource for children and teachers everywhere. 




This showreel contains edited material chosen from a combination of live performances, installations and workshops over the last year. Each project involved a new collaboration with professional and amateur musicians, artists and performers through the use of animated graphic notation.
Many thanks to all who took part.
