Missing green

Following on from screening at the Cork Film Festival, Paris at Gaité Lyrique and Palais de Tokyo, Anne Maree Barry’s Missing Green will be shown at Haus der Kulteren der Welt, Berlin as part of Les Rencontres Internationales, which takes place in Berlin from June 3rd to 8th. The programme focuses on contemporary moving image practices. Missing Green (2013) is a poetic journey through Cork Street, Dublin. Narrated via interviews with Councillor John Gallagher, architect Gerry Cahill, author and journalist Frank McDonald and sociologist Aileen O’Gorman, the viewer discovers an area in Dublin that has gradually but dramatically transformed in the last 80 years.

We had the pleasure of working on the sound edit, sound design and final mix of the film at Ardmore Sound last year. Here's an excerpt:

The Pervert's Guide to Ideology

I was delighted to read that Sophie Fiennes' The Pervert's Guide To Ideology (produced by Blinder Films) is screening as part of Encounters South African International Documentary Festival this June. We worked on the full sound post production for the film at Screenscene and Ardmore Sound. Here's the Trailer:


If you are looking for a film to see in the cinema in Ireland or the UK this week, you really should go see Frank. Don't take my word for it, though, I am clearly biased... Here's Mark Kermode and Simon Mayo's review:

Here's the beautiful 'I Love You All' (performed by Michael Fassbender, Carla Azar and Stephen Rennicks), from the film:

Dublin Editors

I just want to say a huge thank you to Dublin Editors (Derek, John, Eoin) and everyone that attended our 'In Conversation With...' event last week. It was a real pleasure to talk about the work we did on 'What Richard Did' and 'Frank' with my colleagues Nathan Nugent and Niall Brady. If you are at all interested in fimmaking, keep an eye on Dublin Editors Facebook group for their upcoming events.

David Hendy

I recently read David Hendy's 'Noise: a Human History', which I can't recommend enough to anyone with an interest in sound. From the book, I discovered his twitter account, which is well worth a follow for the sound inclined. Here are two really interesting articles he's posted recently:

The New York Review of Books - Under The Skin Review

On silence as property, commodity and instrument of opression

Alan Splet

Here's a lovely editorial piece about the career and influence of the work of one of my all time sound favourites, Alan Splet from the Paris Review. There's also a nice youtube clip of David Lynch discussing their work together.

The Sound of Godzilla

Soundworks Collection has a really nice interview with sound designers of Godzilla on creating the creature language in the film. They also shared a video about re-creating that iconic roar. The original roar created for the 1954 film had an interesting origin, too!

Matthew Herbert

If you're looking for something interesting to listen to, here's Matthew Herbert raiding the British Library's Sound Archive for a session for The Boiler Room.
