The Line

Choreographed by Raewyn Hill & Co directed by Mark Howett for Co3 Australia.
May 17th - 19th at the State Theatre Centre of WA in Perth 2019

Mulholland and classical accordionist James Crabb performed Mulholland’s score live, with variety and virtuosity. With instruments set on either side of the auditorium in front of the audience, the musicians cross in front of the stage occasionally and, at times, join the dancers on stage. Mulholland says he wants his score to “be life-affirming and play against the darkness of the subject matter,” and it is one of the production’s strengths, incorporating accordion, piano, guitar, percussion, synthesizer and also Mulholland’s haunting falsetto voice
— Margaret Mercer. Dance Australia

Movement Of The Human

Concert Chamber, Town Hall, Auckland, Feb 2019
Created by Movement Of The Human

Eden Mulholland’s music, performed live, (with entrancing vocal contribution from performer Hannah
Lynch ) injects life into the Town Hall, proving him again to be a versatile collaborator and skilful artist
— Chloe Klein. Theatre Review NZ

Mass Solitude

Part of Footnote’s programme “Hemispheres”
A collaboration with Guangdong Modern Dance Company. Choreographed by Sarah Foster-Sproull.
March / April NZ and China Tour 2019

While Foster-Sproull’s movement animates the dancers, it is Eden Mulholland’s rhythmically immersive score that drives events along and gets into your blood. Despite his many past successes, this could well be his best-ever score for dance
— NZ Herald. Raewyn Whyte

the dancers seemed to become strangely energised by the fatigue they must have felt; as Eden Mulholland’s rousing score built in intensity, so too did their performance

…a dark, arcane, cinematic quality, which is echoed in the new score created by composer Eden Mulholland, who melds cello, voice, and spoken word to haunting effect. Allusions to Nordic folklore

Choreographed by Sarah Foster-Sproull for the
Royal New Zealand Ballet

Despite the Loss of Small Detail by Sarah Foster-Sproull, (NZ) accompanied by Eden Mulholland’s urgent, pulsating music. Foster-Sproull focuses on the strength of women, their grit and determination, and then abstracts those qualities
— Ann Hunt - Dominion post

Wired

Choreographed by Sarah Foster-Sproull & OkarekaDance Company
24-28 January 2018, Q Theatre, Auckland

Composer Eden Mulholland’s music is bewitching, bewildering and completely beguiling in this show. His music is not only the perfect complement to the phenomenal choreography but gives the entire show added lustre and polish through the tempo and mood changes. His ability to augment all the sentiments being expressed on stage via movement is pleasing and extremely memorable. There are echoes of Jean-Michel Jarre and Peter Gabriel, Vangelis’ Yellow and Midge Ure, but none of these quite stack up to Mulholland’s beautifully composed soundscape
— SHARU DELILKAN AND TIM BOOTH Theatre Scenes

2017


RUSHES

March 2017 premiered Auckland Fringe in partnership with Auckland Live, NZI foyer, Aotea Centre
February 2018 New Zealand Festival in partnership with Te Papa, Circa Theatre, Wellington

Mulholland’s deliciously variegated live music, with cameo insets, is the unifying thread for RUSHES which draws to a close with his haunting yet driving, I can taste the virus. It brings all the performers and audience into the same space at last and is a stirring and perfect finale
— NZ Herald 2017

THE ZONE

Choreographed by Raewyn Hill for Co3 Australia
Sept 2017. State Theatre Centre of WA

The music, composed and performed live by Eden Mulholland, is dynamically responsive and sympathetic as dramatic themes unfold. Pacing across his own platform along the front of the stage, Mulholland skilfully layers strings, vocals and keyboards until he becomes a chorus in himself, marking near sacred moments as dancers lose themselves in quasi-liturgical expression

ATAMIRA

Choreographed by Kelly Nash and Commissioned by Atamira Dance Company.
Shed 1. Corbans Estate. December 2017

Eden Mulholland’s superb music composition obviously had a massive impact on the overall design of the work with wonderful moments of other-worldly sounds saturating the space and the rhythmic underpinning always driving the dance forward
— Jenny Stevenson DANZ

ORCHIDS

Choreographed by Sarah Foster-Sproull
Thursday Oct 12 - Friday Oct 13 2017 at TEMPO Dance Festival 2017

Sound designer Eden Mulholland has created dense clouds of looping sound that hover humidly in the space creating a sense of heavy anticipation. Rather than a dynamic driver or source of tempo there is often a sense of sound being an entity – a backdrop punctuated by sonic accents to accompany singular gestures. More rhythmic sections see the action driven by pulsing strings that bring to mind a pagan jig reimagined by Yo-Yo Ma
— Paul Young. The Pantograph Punch

MEREMERE

Meremere is a powerful, engaging autobiographical work from an exceptional artist, Rodney Bell | Ngāti Maniapoto.
Directed by Malia Johnston and Movement of the Human
October 2016
premiered Tempo Dance Festival

It is a haunting soundscape of memories; emotions of love, loss and hope; ideas of loneliness, struggle and triumph. Mulholland is a gentle performer, gracious in his shaping of the piece

The Cry

Choreographed by Raewyn Hill for Co3 Australia.
September 15–17 at Heath Ledger Theatre at the State Theatre Centre of Western Australia
Photo Credit: Stefan Gosatti

Eden Mulholland provided a live soundtrack from on stage, both in front of and from within the performance space, another feature not often employed by dance companies, lithely moving between different instruments and affecting and instigating dancers actions and reactions with the music. With the introduction of Mulhollands voice there was a touch of Cirque du Soleil as loop pedals, backing tracks and dancers fought for the spotlight but the overall soundtrack was a seductively powerful way to drive the dancers energy and move the show forward
