nineties he co-founded the ultramack/u:mack label and studios and as one half of Decal, released three albums and many other tracks on a number of international and Irish labels, among them Planet-Mu, Warp and Rotters Golf Club.
Since graduating from the Music and Media Technology Course (Trinity
College) in 2000, his interests have focused on generative sonic
systems and electronic improvisation. His project Gameboy Music looks at how the Nanoloop cartridge turns a Gameboy console into a combined
synthesiser and sequencer.
Paul Murnaghan: Snow
Paul Murnaghan’s work has always strived to express human emotion
through a mixture of familiar tactile objects and digital manipulation.
With this new work ‘snow’ he plays with the idea of comfort via our
"third parent" – television, focusing on a broken-down TV as both
catalyst and source material. ‘snow’ is built around human interaction
and is a further development of the natural tactile interfaces that are
present within Paul Murnaghan’s work.
