    The Lyric Feature - Finding Music

    Composer Linda Buckley explores what it is that compels composers to write music.

    Finding Music

    Composer Linda Buckley grew up on her family’s farm just outside Kinsale, Co. Cork. It was there that her interest in the potential of sound first awakened, from the rhythmic chugging of a milking machine to the ever present rise and fall of the sea. In Finding Music, she explores what it is that compels composers to write music, and the journey they take from blank page to concert performance of a new work. A personal reflection on the creative act, she compares experiences with fellow composers John Buckley, Judith Ring and Jonathan Nangle.

    The Lyric Feature is RTÉ lyric fm's weekly documentary and music feature programme. Programmes are produced in house by Lyric fm staff or in collaboration with independent production companies. Subject matter varies from week to week but most of the programmes aim to provide insight into music and music making.
