LISTEN: Limerick Lady Podcast #23 Eimear Noone: What’s a Conductrix?

109

IN this episode, your hosts Ann Blake and Emma Langford are joined over zoom by composer and conductor Eimear Noone. Originally from the village of Kilconnell in Galway, Eímear has spent a large portion of her adult life in LA and is based now in Dublin with her husband and kids.

Eímear is best known for her award-winning work on video game music, and composed the score for “World of WarCraft: Warlords of Draenor”, which received a “Hollywood Music in Media Award” in 2014.
In 2019 Noone made history as the first woman ever to conduct at the Oscars.

The conversation veers from managing the working-from-home situation to the importance of role models, taking in sexism in the classical music world, and Eímear explains her self-ordained title of “conductrix”. This month’s episode is a Limerick Mental Health Week special, and as part of that topic we cover the issue of creative burnout and managing your workload.
