ORIGINAL MUSIC COMPOSITIONS
A sample of some of the original music composed, performed and recorded
by Colm McElwee of Carlow Digital
For many years, I composed music for theatrical productions like The Fall of the House of Usher, Macbeth, King Arthur, Treasure Island, Julius Caesar and for commercial use. With lockdown, I returned to music. Some of the resulting work is featured below, with thanks to the poets and others who allowed me to feature their art. Videos compiled by Carlow Digital.
If you require original music for your own project, I would love to hear from you.
