Vincent grew up in Drogheda, Co. Louth but made the big move to Dublin in the late 1980s.
By the early 1990s, he had begun to write and record original work. During this time he began a close musical relationship with the composer Daniel Figgis and singer Deirdre Behan and an ongoing songwriting project began. In 2008 Figgis commissioned Vincent to compose the pieces “Rotary Grove” and “Termonfeckin” for The Snakes and Ladders Festival in New York. Figgis also curated the anthology album “On The Nature of Electricity and Acoustics” by Heresy Records, which contains Vincent’s solo release “Snow Din”.
Back in 1994, an interest in the use of tape loops as a method of composition led to Vincent’s first work in sound design for theatre, and he worked extensively with groundbreaking companies such as Bedrock and Corn Exchange throughout the decade.
Since 2003 he has worked as part of an ongoing relationship with composer Ivan Birthistle to create original scores and sound designs for many of Ireland’s major theatre and dance companies, including The Abbey Theatre, CoisCéim, Fishamble, Rough Magic, Barabbas, and The Lyric in Belfast.
He has toured with shows to London, Paris, Helsinki, New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney amongst many other places, and recently traveled with Pan Pan Theatre to Georgetown in Malaysia.
Vincent has also composed music and soundscapes for a number of radio plays for RTE.
