Following the great success of our ‘Connecting Creativity’ project in 2013, we are delighted to announce the creation of ‘Connecting Musicality’.
‘Connecting Musicality’ is an innovative project allowing Irish and American singers and songwriters to collaborate through technology and present those collaborative creations to Irish and American audiences in a unique and innovative way.
What’s it all about?
Five singers and five songwriters will be selected in Ireland to take part in the project, while five singers and five songwriters based in America will also be chosen.
Each Irish singer is paired with an American-based songwriter, and each American-based singer is paired with an Irish songwriter. Singers have a Skype call with their writer. They can speak about everything and anything; musical styles and tastes, life stories, belief in aliens!
Following their Skype meeting, each songwriter will write a song for their singer which they will perform at the CONNECTING MUSICALITY CONCERT on Saturday November 29th 2014.
Irish singers will perform in DUBLIN and American singers will perform in NEW YORK. The two venues will be connected via Skype and both audiences will view performances from the two continents; the Dublin audience will see Irish singers performing in the flesh and see the American singers performing in New York via Skype and vice versa.
Audience Members will also be given the opportunity to speak with singers and songwriters about their songs and their experience of collaborating through technology across the Atlantic.
Who are our Participants?
Irish songwriter Rónán Ó Snodaigh has been paired with American singer Angela Watson Modeste

What are our goals?
As part of our mission, the Break-Away Project work toward creating links between Irish and American artists, regularly showcasing work by American artists here in Ireland and developing showcase opportunities for Irish artists in America. With this project we want to:
- Present a unique and innovative concert experience to audiences in Dublin and New York.
- Give singers and songwriters the opportunity to collaborate across the Atlantic and introduce new audiences to their work.
- Test the boundaries of technology, using Skype to facilitate artistic collaborations that would otherwise not be feasible.
- Make some great music!
