Kieran R. Leonard

Kieran R. Leonard is an artist, composer and musician. Music and sound are of great importance to him; so much so that his artwork is dedicated to music. He tries to question how we value music in its consumption within a non-material environment and how the internet has changed our perception of community. Marshall McLuhan has helped Kieran in his understanding of the “Global Village” as Kieran tries to bring elements of globalisation into his own work by looking at his Irish ancestry and fusing it with other cultures. Kieran is interested in ethnomusicology and likes to find comparisons in cultures through music. He feels this topic is relevant today; as social networking has quietly become a common part of our daily lives and a new way of listening to music has come of age.
