Eímear Noone is a LA/Dublin based conductor and award-winning Irish composer, composing extensively for film and video games. As one of the world’s premier composers of games scores, Eímear is responsible for some of the most enduring soundscapes on World of Warcraft and other best-selling video games. Her composition portfolio of 28 film and video-game titles have received multiple industry accolades including the Hollywood Music in Media Award for Best Video Game Score. Recently, Eímear composed the score for the new film by Stephen Fry based on Oscar Wilde’s short story The Canterville Ghost. She has composed the score for the animated feature film, Two by Two: Overboard, which topped the UK Box Office in October 2020 and earned her an Ivor Novello nomination for Best Original Film Score.
Alongside composing, Eímear conducts orchestras worldwide. In 2020, Eímear made history by becoming the first female conductor to perform at the 92nd Academy Awards ceremony.
Beyond these projects, Eímear is constantly innovating new orchestral shows and concepts to expand the boundaries of her repertoire. In addition to two video game concerts of her own, Electric Arcade and Video Games in Concert, she recently premiered a completely original show, Daughters of the Pirate Queen: The Spirit of Grace O’Malley as part of Ireland’s 2023 International Women’s Day Celebration. Selling out the National Concert Hall of Ireland and attended by President Michael D. Higgins himself, this show synthesised the work of some of Ireland’s most exciting female performers and songwriters to tell the story of Grainne Mhaol, a legendary pirate queen whose story had gone untold for far too long.
