A 22-minute film exploring the Burren’s mystic, living, landscape and its relationship to the traditions of Irish music and dance will be screened every night during this year’s Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann.
Returning to Clare after last summer’s roaring success, attendants at next week’s annual Fleadh Cheoil will be greeted with the work of Ennis-based artist Shelagh Honan, who with the support of Clare County Council has created a large-scale art installation that will form the centre-piece of this year’s event.
The film, 'Passage of Sound' is all about bringing the landscape to life through music and sound. Honan explained:
"with the Burren's moon-like landscape, the swirling mists from the top of Mount Brandon and the dark mysterious mountain lakes that bring us down to the foot of Brandon Creek. The journey is a metaphorical one, presenting the experience of the artist who travels to the edge in search of music and sound."
