Paddy McKeown

Artist Intro

Paddy Mckeown is a visual artist and musician, working from a research-led practice exploring the transformation of folk-art traditions as transient mediums into plastic arts. The work transforms material which traditionally existed as fragments in history into something that is both durable and malleable. Throughout his residency in DAS, Paddy is planning to further explore field recording and visual programming within music to produce both graphic scores and generative systems. These will provide source material for both interactive and multi-media works, combining Irish traditional music with new technologies and experimental practices.
