Strength, force, vigour

I have provided a new piece of music titled "The Hawk-Headed Lord" to the online literary journal Colony, for their current issue based around the theme of magic. You can hear it at their website here.

Awakening

PK Live

A real pleasure to join Patrick Kelleher onstage at Vicar Street last night for a few songs, including the debut of a collaboration we've been working on together. I'll be joining him there again tonight, although the event has - as with last night - been sold out for some time now. For those unable to attend the Vicar Street concerts (or for those who want to hear his new songs live again!), you can catch Patrick (his set again featuring an appearance from myself) this Thursday at the Grand Social, for which tickets at a discounted price are still available (see the event page by New Natives on Facebook for further information).

The 43 minute version of The Poorhouse Revisited is now available to view online at Vimeo. This version was premiered at The Joinery on the 18th January 2012 with a live score from Suzanne Walsh, Diarmuid MacDiarmada and myself.

Descry

The fifteen minute edit of Michael Higgins' amazing, intense and hallucinogenic film The Poorhouse Revisited is available to view for the first time online here at Vimeo. I provided the soundtrack for this, which features vocals from Suzanne Walsh along with my reworkings of material created with many talented friends of mine. The magnificent feature length version of this film has to be seen to be believed, but this is a good taster of that.

Uncaged

BC / SW / DMD Live Samhain 2014

This Halloween, the trio of Suzanne Walsh, Diamuid MacDiarmada, and myself play live for the first time in over two years (during this period of silence to the outer world we have managed to record a lot of new material, to be released when the time and place are right). Giving the event - which is in our favourite venue in Dublin (and sadly due to close its doors for good at the end of the year) - even more of a reunion feel, we'll be sharing the stage (and Diarmuid) with the sensational Tarracóir, who feature dear old friends and collaborators Gavin Prior and Bryan O'Connell. 


SAW 2014


I (alongside Ed Devane, Andy Mooney amongst others) have contributed music to the sound installation at the Sonic Arts Waterford festival in collaboration with W.I.T. Vertical Studio and Waterford Festival of Architecture.
