Rachel Ní Chuinn swapped guitar for clarinet a few years ago, which she melds with live electronics into expressive sound.

In this month’s Music at Marrowbone Books, the musician and sound artist – and member of the Dublin Laptop Orchestra – performs some of her improvisations. They build on themselves, reverberating, layer upon layer.

Thinking about sound as a physical medium has led Ní Chuinn down all kinds of paths. From music exploring the afterglow static of the Big Bang, to works inspired by the acoustics of neolithic caves.
