Public Outreach

Science Gallery/SIGNAL series

Sponsored by IMRO and partnered with the Science Gallery Dublin and the Trinity Long Room Hub, Martin designed and hosted an 18-month series of events, ‘SIGNAL, Conversations about technology, creativity and music.
All events were held between 2017 and 2019 on the Paccar Theatre, with several sold out in advance.

The events were structured around different topics ranging from live coding to augmented reality, with the “Signal Careers” event marking the first time all major music colleges participated together in a large-scale public engagement event. Participating institutions included BIMM, BCFE, UCD, DCU, CIT, Limerick University, DIK, DIT, Trinity, Pulse, STC and Maynooth and RIAM.
