The programme will showcase the work and creative inspiration of fifteen of Ireland’s most exciting sound practitioners across a wide spectrum of audio disciplines – including sound art, poetry, sound therapy, broadcasting and sound design amongst others.
In a short chat with presenter La Cosa Preziosa, participants discuss their inspirations and work in sound. Each interview is recorded on location chosen by the interviewee and takes its cues from the sounds in this location.
The series was made by producer Alan Meaney and Sound Artist La Cosa Preziosa. It is funded by the BAI with the television licence fee.
