Hay, Diana Pereira
- Inge Bruland
(b Sri Lanka, Feb 20, 1932). Danish composer. Her father was Australian, her mother of Irish descent, but she was educated at the Kongelige Danske Musikkonservatorium in Copenhagen. She studied the piano as her main subject, but also composition and orchestration with Vagn Holmboe. Her musical output is small yet original: it consists mainly of piano music, such as Exercises in Metamorphosis I and II (1966), Sonata in Three Phases (1978), Sonata no. 2 (1979) and I’m Still Alive (1983). There is a further set of Exercises in Metamorphosis for string quartet (1967). Hay was a leading figure in the founding of the association Kvinder i Musik (Women in Music) in 1980, and by the 1990s had turned to the composition of computer music for educational purposes.I.
