Ailís will be an Associate Artist working with the American pianist Myra Melford in May 2016 at The Atlantic Center for the Arts. Melford is a composer with a singular, kinetic, and lyrical voice in piano improvisation. Her conceptually expansive music draws inspiration from a vast spectrum of cultural and spiritual traditions and artistic disciplines.

Ailís is grateful to the Irish Arts Council for supporting her travel costs to enable her to take up her Residency where she will be focusing on piano improvisation, collaboration and composition.
