Back in the studio
I’m back in the studio, the sounds of Dublin and Hellfire swarming through me. The city and story are both noisy and crowded and the roadworks and one way systems everywhere make cycling sometimes wobbly. I also want to include the southside Georgian architecture, multi coloured front doors, the canal including the graffiti-ed garage doors close to the path before the glinting limes, the cobbled street under the bridge through to capital dockland high-ride globalised glass surfaced architecture, bankers lunching, the Samuel Beckett bridge and wind and whiff off the sea as you cross the Liffey and turn left to roll along past the Emmigration museum, the famine statues and Customs house, crossing the Liffey again over the Rosie Hackett bridge, and then up O’Connell St, the Dublin spire beaming, and round Parnell Sq, down Dorset St, left down Capel, over bridge again..(we cross the Liffey 4 times), left at the Council house, along Dame and then right at Trinity St to wriggle down Wicklow to Nassau and back into the Science gallery through the Trinity campus. This last bit is fraught with roadworks and the luas(tram) line build, but avoids the grimmer situation along Pearse St and College Green and I think is legal on the one ways.
And all this in effect creates this rolling stage. Context. Sonic landscape for composition. So Kaffe, welcome the restrictions, or rather, please find more.
