Established in 1995, Moving on Music are an independent organisation and registered charity, who provide an eclectic mix of music and education services to the entire community.
Northern Irish non for-profit organisation Moving on Music has crafted an impressive video walk-through experience at the Black Box, Belfast with performances from Blue Whale, Landless, Scott Flanigan Trio, Steve Davis, Laytha and Martha Guiney with Shane McCartan.
Dedicated to ideals of innovation and originality, Moving on Music champion new developments in music, inspire and nurture musical talents, and provide opportunities for everyone to get involved in music.
‘All The Noels’ is a 30-odd-minute single shot, walk-through type experience, with different music happening in the various spaces of the venue.
Having originally aired on Facebook, YouTube and Instagram on October 23, the video can be viewed for free with an option to donate to Moving on Music.
“It was a great day," Mick Bonner of Moving on Music said. "We were joined by some of our favourite musicians who all played an absolute blinder. It was hugely enjoyable, and to be honest, very much needed. We’ve really missed live music. Hopefully the good time we had comes across in the final video”.
“We decided to name the project ‘All The Noels’ after (possibly) the most well-known gig-goer in Belfast; Noel Stevenson," Bonner adds.
"If you’re a regular concert goer, you’ll know Noel. If it’s worth going to, Noel is there. So, this is our homage to All The Noels out there who are missing live music as much as we are.”
The video was recorded in one day by a team of audio-visual professionals, and captures the feeling of being in the famous Belfast venue to catch some music.
It’s also a demonstration of the incredible musicians Belfast has locally, who sadly aren’t able to perform to audiences at the moment.
“Things aren’t great right now but we’re getting through it, and music (and the arts in general) has been a lifeline for so many over the past six months. This was our attempt at remembering better times”.
