Shane McKenna

Shane McKenna DabbledoMusic

Shane Mc Kenna is a music maker and music teacher based in Wicklow, Ireland, exploring the use of non-traditional music notation, particularly animated notation, to create musical collaboration. Shane has been working with this type of notation since 2008, through live performances, installations, workshops and presentations including the International Symposium of Electronic Arts in Istanbul and Tenor (IRCAM).

Shane has used animated notation to create a new system of music education called DabbledooMusic. The system exists as a fully interactive online resource for children and teachers everywhere, and was based on his MMT Master’s thesis project.
