Nocturnes :: Serpents

We had a very simple idea…Pearse was to pick up a stone and climb the height of Knocknarea mountain and place the stone on the ancient cairn of queen Maeve. It wasn’t until we began rolling that the epic terra firma that is Sligo began to make the video for us. We did little and Sligo did it all. I’m proud that such an atmospheric piece found a perfect home in the sea, wind and hills of Pearse’s hometown.

Rhob Cunningham :: The Early Stage

http://www.rhobcunningham.com

Rhob Cunningham is a beautiful person, musician, bucket of knowledge and also I’m happy to say he’s one of my very best friends. So maybe he won’t bite my head off if I stick this old un-released song&video online without his consent. It’s just too good to private any longer. My apologies Rhob but there ya go now, huh?!.

I Have A Tribe :: Cuckoo : Live In Berlin

It was a thrill to visit beautiful Berlin from Ireland and make this video with Patrick in his friend David Heddermans studio. Like the other videos I have been fortunate to make recently for I Have A Tribe, we were able to include very strong themes of culture, craft and creativity.

Rue :: Katie Cruel

As part of a new Irish music program This Aint No Disco, directed by Myles O’Reilly and presented by Donal Dineen, Irish folk trio Rue perform ‘Katie Cruel’. All visuals created by Donal Dineen and Myles O’Reilly, with Aideen Macken modeling. Filmed and edited by Donal Dineen and Myles O’Reilly.

Rue are Brian Flanagan with Cormac Mac Diarmada and Radie Peat who both play with Dublin folk miscreants Lynched. They present a truly eclectic mix of traditional songs and tunes from both sides of the Atlantic played with immutable conviction on fiddle, five-string banjo, harmonium and concertina. Expect whaling songs and murder ballads underpinned by a wash of harmonic swells and drones and a barn-dance or two thrown in for good measure.

Lisa Hannigan :: Lo

I was just so excited to be asked to make a video with Lisa again that I don’t quite remember what happened. I have a foggy memory of a meeting with her and a very colourful character called Mikel. He lit up the room. The coffee was good. Lisa spoke of insomnia. Nothing was written down. The next thing we were improvising. Mikel changed in to his pyjamas and switched in to character. I remember feeling giddy a lot. We gasped in awe and chuckled a lot.. and that is as much as my memory serves me.

I Have A Tribe :: Buddy Holly

http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/music/i-have-a-tribe-unveils-video-for-new-single-buddy-holly-a7001461.html

Attracting early praise for his sparse, beautifully understated music, Patrick O’Laoghaire, aka I Have A Tribe’s debut album Beneath A Yellow Moon was produced by Paul Savage [Mogwai, Twilight Sad] and is due out 27 May.

O’Laoghaire says of the song: “I think I wrote most of it in spring in 2008, and finished it then in 2015. I have this notion that sometimes, because humans have been writing songs and melodies for so many hundreds and thousands of years; when a song presents itself to you as an idea to write down – maybe you’re just making your own version of something that was already kind of done.

“And I don’t see it as a bad thing – more-so I take from this that the same sentiments and emotions have moved humans in the same manner always, and the attempt to write comes from the same source. With songs, then, maybe some musical templates become timeless, because a certain structure of chords or a certain movement of a melody will reveal itself again and again.

“When I played this song for a piano teacher of mine 7 or 8 years ago, I remember she started to sing Buddy Holly, It’s Raining In My Heart. So I went and I listened to that song, and it was a nice comfort to hear the same pattern at the start. So that’s where the name comes from. I left it alone for a few years then. and dug it back out when I thought I had something more to add to it. Lastly I brought it to my friend Paul, and he added a drumbeat to it that gave the song a sense of humour, and then it was done.

“For the video, I wrote to Myles O’Reilly. We had some tea in his kitchen one afternoon and I played him the song, and he marched around his kitchen shouting ideas at the walls. A few weeks later he brought us to a yoga studio and projected old footage of Dublin on the walls, and dreamed up a wooden box car for me to sit in. It was a joy to work with him, and Donal, Mick, and Steve”.
