Now at Copland House

Composer-musicologist Flannery Cunningham, in residence through early May, is fascinated by vocal expression, auditory perception, and the compositional process, and aims to write music that surprises and delights. A 2019 Fellow of Copland House’s CULTIVATE emerging composers institute, she composes for both acoustic ensembles and players interacting with real-time electronics; as an active poet, she often writes her own texts, enjoying the crafting of words and music as tightly intertwined processes. She is attracted to the very old and very new, presenting on the 14th-century master Guillaume de Machaut at the International Medieval Congress and performing at the International Computer Music Conference. Her music has been heard at the Aspen and June in Buffalo Festivals, and performed by International Contemporary Ensemble, and she is currently working on commissions from National Sawdust (as a winner of its Hildegard Competition), PRISM Quartet, Musiqa Houston, and New York New Music Ensemble. A graduate of Princeton, University College Cork, and Stony Brook University, she is currently a dual Doctoral candidate in composition and musicology at the University of Pennsylvania
