Cathal – Bio

Cathal

From: Glasnevin, Dublin
Instruments: Bass guitar, guitar, keyboard, backing vocals

Cathal hails from all over Dublin but most recently Glasnevin. After finishing his degree in Mathematics, Cathal went on to complete two master’s courses in Maths and High Performance Computing which makes him the computer nerd of the band! In the past few years, Cathal has been teaching tutorials and helprooms in Mathematics in Trinity College and in DCU.

Cathal first started playing guitar when he went to Coláiste Lurgan as a teenager, and has had a passion for music ever since. Writing and translating songs for the best part of a decade with Stiofán meant that Cathal became a central figure to the music department of Coláiste Lurgan. Over the years, Cathal developed his guitar playing and performing and has since adapted this skills to the bass guitar and has never looked back….much! He draws inspiration from artists such as Arcade Fire and Muse and has imprinted his own technique on the foundation of our sound. His mathemagical knowledge of song structure keeps everyone in check and his silky, slick bass slides ensures that our underlying groove will keep your head bopping!

Cathal has an uncanny ability to hum Bb on demand – a surprisingly useful talent! He is an intellectual at heart and will never leave you short of trivial information. Along with Gaeilge, Cathal has an interest in English, French and Binary code.

Cathal

As: Glas Naíon, Baile Átha Cliath
Uirlisí: Dord-ghiotár, giotár, méarchlár, cúlghlór

Cathal bhunadh fud Bhaile Átha Cliath, ach is mó le déanaí Glas Naíon. Tar éis críochnú a chuid céim sa Mhatamaitic, chuaigh Cathal ar a chur i gcrích dhá chúrsa máistreachta sa Mhatamaitic agus Ríomhaireacht Ardfheidhmíochta a dhéanann sé an nerd ríomhaireachta an bhanna! Sna blianta beaga anuas, tá Cathal ag múineadh ranganna teagaisc agus helprooms sa Mhatamaitic i gColáiste na Tríonóide agus i DCU.

Cathal tosaithe ar dtús seinm giotár nuair a chuaigh sé go dtí Coláiste Lurgan mar dhéagóir, agus bhí paisean don cheol ó shin i leith. scríobh amhráin agus ag aistriú don chuid is fearr de deich mbliana leis an Stiofán Chiallaigh sé sin tháinig Cathal figiúr lárnach roinn ceoil Choláiste Lurgan. Thar na blianta, d’fhorbair Cathal a imirt giotár agus ag feidhmiú agus tá sé in oiriúint ó seo scileanna chun an giotár Bass agus riamh d’fhéach sé ar ais … .much! Tarraingíonn sé inspioráid ó ealaíontóirí ar nós Dóiteáin Arcade agus Muse agus tá imprinted a teicníc féin ar bhunús leis an ár fuaime. Coinníonn chuid eolais mathemagical struchtúr amhrán gach duine i sheiceáil agus a silky, sleamhnáin Bass slick chinntíonn go mbeidh ár groove bunúsacha a choinneáil do cheann bopping!

Cathal Tá cumas uncanny a hum Bb ar éileamh – tallann ionadh úsáideach! Tá sé ina intleachtúil ag croí agus ní bheidh a fhágann tú gearr faisnéise fánach. Mar aon le Gaeilge, go bhfuil leas i mBéarla cód, i bhFraincis agus Dénártha Cathal.

It’s been a steep learning curve, and it’s been quite tough at times, but I’ve had some phenomenal experiences with Seo Linn, and I can’t wait to see what future we can make for ourselves!

Is fada dréimire na foghlama, agus bhí sé fíor-dheacair ó am go chéile, ach bhí taithí dochreidte agam le Seo Linn, agus táim ar bís le fáil amach cén cineál todhchaí ar féidir linn a chruthú dúinn féin!
