Biography

Amy Rooney is a composer from Co. Down. Her works show a particular interest in the generation of microrhythms, investigating whether the pursuit of such minute inflections is best achieved through mathematically exact scores or a more improvisational approach. Many of her scores employ the use of aleatoric procedures as a means of generating dense rhythmic textures.
Amy’s works have been performed by various soloists and ensembles including Jack Quartet, RTE Con Tempo Quartet, Concorde, Tonnta, Kirkos, Hard Rain, Crash Ensemble and Co-orch Orchestra among others. Recent works include a new piece for Crash Ensemble and a work for the Ulster Orchestra which will be broadcast on BBC Radio 3 in Spring 2021.
Amy has recently completed a PhD in Composition at Queen’s University Belfast, under the supervision of Dr Simon Mawhinney and Professor Piers Hellawell.
