Daniel Barkley is an enthusiastic, young(-ish) Irish composer, currently in the third year of study towards a PhD at Queen's University Belfast, under Prof. Piers Hellawell. He has worked with ensembles and had performances throughout Ireland and the UK, and occasionally further afield (USA, Romania, Portugal).
His current research interests include the structural symbiosis of harmonic, melodic, and motivic materials, and an increasing focus on extreme miniaturisation.
