Clonbur le Chéile – sa Choill!

“Join friends Áine and Siobhán as they discover a hidden trail of unseen voices and invisible music, specially recorded on location in immersive binaural stereo.

“Meet some of the people who love the woods now, or who worked there in the past, as well as musical performers who’ve brought their instruments deep into the woods to play – just for you, and only here.”

During summer 2020 we had produced three online video events for the community with the aim of alleviating isolation, featuring local musicians, stories and archive footage.

I wanted to make a soundwalk with the same community appeal of local music and story, but tied closely to the particular life and feel of Clonbur Woods, freeing eyes from screens and freeing people to move.

‘Clonbur le Chéile – sa Choill!’* was funded by Culture Night 2020, courtesy of the Department of Arts, Heritage, Regional, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs, in collaboration with Galway County Council.

* = ‘Clonbur together – in the woods!’
