Alternative Version of “Close Your Eyes” is Online Now!

Some vocal edits, some tweaks, some mix balances, I don’t think I should call it a remix but a small re-work of my original song “Close Your Eyes” which features Fiona McErlane and Keith Caffrey on vocals.

I personally prefer this version. I intended on making the female vocals and drums clearer. I especially hope the listener is drawn to the delicate subtleties of Fiona’s voice.

Both versions will stay online! Enjoy!

Field Recording at Dunany Point, Co. Louth, Ireland

A couple of weeks ago I brought my Zoom H4N handy recorder to my favourite secret beach- Dunany Point, Co. Louth.

Dunany Point (Dunany being the anglicisation of Dún Áine -the fort of Áine) is said to be a place of deep sorrow, where the beautiful Áine sat in her chair of stone and looked across the sea towards her love who never returned. It is said that the black rocks at the base of the cliff were Áine’s attempt to build a causeway so she could see her love one day. Alas, Áine never did see her love again and slowly went mad with grief.

This recording might be nice for those who wish to hear a mostly unvisited, unspoiled beach in a quiet corner of Ireland!

Please enjoy this recording and if you wish to use it in your project, don’t hesitate to ask for permission!

A Walk by the Shore in Norway

Very busy with the preparations for the final performance in HSH tomorrow… We’ve been working hard creating films, dramas, music, dances and art and crafts.

Today we went to Haugesund which is on another island about one hour from Stord and had a performance for the students at that campus. Haugesund was very pretty too.

Yesterday I went for a little walk around the campus here and took some pictures and recorded the sound of the shore. I will be including this sample in my new song which I’m nearly finished 🙂
