Hy Brasil at Drop Everything 2014
I was recently invited to create audio for a site specific installation at the Drop Everything cultural biennial on Inis Oírr. Entitled Hy Brasil the piece is a project about islands and transience and was conceived and developed by Baz Holden, Brian Kenny and Mick Murray of Lightscape, Anthony Murphy of The Shadow Lab, Pat Murray and Tom O'Dea along with myself. It was a really exciting project to work on and has been very warmly received, described here by Laurence Mackin of the Irish Times as, "a series of light poles swelling and pulsing in complement to rich harmonies that shimmer out from the dunes," and by Una Mullally on her Pop Life blog as, "otherworldly and spectacular, with speakers hidden in the dunes at night as the lights danced on the edge of the sand." Many thanks to Peter Martin for the video featured here and to Conal Thomson for the photo below. There should be more documentation of this project to follow soon.
