Malachy Robinson -
Deirdre Gribbin’s Maps of Awakening was written for virtuoso bass player Malachy Robinson. The composer writes that maps not only provide a connection to a place but also serve as tools of discovery. During Lockdown of 2020-21 maps were my source for adventure and exploration beyond the confines of life and work in a small and often stifling geographical space. An awareness of my emotional map during Covid was heightened. For me, Maps of Awakening is a realisation about the necessity and importance of being grounded in the familiar in order to navigate the new.
