I am also a performer of Early Music on viols – or violas da gamba – a family of bowed guitars that were popular in Europe from the 15th through the late 18th centuries.

On double bass, I perform with many ensembles including the Southwest Michigan Symphony Orchestra, Illinois Philharmonic Orchestra, Illinois Symphony Orchestra, New Philharmonic Orchestra, Northbrook Symphony Orchestra, the Northshore Camerata, Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra, Memphis Symphony Orchestra, and many others.

In performance, I’ve appeared on Chicago’s 98.7FM WFMT, Wisconsin Public Radio and Milwaukee Public Radio. My Early Music Outreach program ‘Viols in Our Schools’ was the recipient of the 2010 Early Music America Outreach Award, which honors ensembles or individual artists for excellence in early music outreach and/or educational projects for children or adults.

ABOUT OUR SERIES GUEST: Dominic Glynn is one of the world’s most prolific composers of production music. His work has featured worldwide in hit TV shows including ‘The Simpsons’, ‘Red Dwarf’ and ‘Dead Like Me’ and in movies like ‘Kevin & Perry Go Large’ and Eddie Murphy/Jeff Goldblum comedy ‘Holy Man’.

Dominic began his career writing incidental music for BBC TV’s “Doctor Who” in the late 1980s, and is one of a select number of composers to have re-arranged the show’s iconic theme tune. In the 90s he continued to compose for a number of BBC shows, and after a series of leftfield underground dance record releases, he formed his own independent record label. Today he can often be seen DJing for ‘The Big Chill’. Live work has included performing at London’s Festival Hall with pedal-steel guitar legend BJ Cole, and the electronica/jazz hybrid project ‘Cybajaz’.

Dominic has composed the score for a series of short supernatural film dramas, screened at London’s Frightfest horror film festival, as well as music for two contemporary dance films. More recently, he has composed the score to upcoming British feature film ‘Bad Day’ starring Claire Goose and Donna Air, as well as a new radio revival of sci-fi classic ‘Blake’s 7’.
