Artists Sheena Graham-George (Orkney, Scotland) and Angelica Kroeger (Ullapool, Scotland) have created a soundscape woven from the sounds of Mount Brandon (Dingle, Co.Kerry), the voices of Bríd Ní Mhóráin, Muiris Ó Muircheartaigh and the vocals of Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh and Breandán Ó Beaglaoich.
Song of Love was inspired by Muiris Muircheartaigh, a local farmer whose family has farmed the slopes of Mount Brandon for centuries. Intimate knowledge of the land was passed down from one generation to the next, through walking the land and maintaining oral traditions. Each field, wall, stream and cliff of Muiris’s land is named and mapped as conscientiously as any urban street map.
This soundscape celebrates our ability to commune with nature; its heavenly effects on our souls, bodies and voice and our love and connectivity with and for the land. The acoustics and reflective properties of the Chapel should provide clarity for sound, mindfulness and solitude, just as nature can.
Song of Love takes place in the Crypt’s Chapel, accessed from Brownlow Hill. Please allow yourself time to find the access point ahead of the on-the-hour showings.
