Festival of World Cultures

Well another brillant weekend of fun was had in Dun Laoghaire with Festival of World Cultures now in it's 10th Year!  

The festival has so much to offer for every-one... immersed in folk, traditional, eclectic, tribal, digital and the experimental, the dlr Festival of World Cultures presents a kaleidoscopic programme of concerts, club nights, fairs, markets, performances, street events, workshops and so much more...

I'm told over 85,000 people visited Dun Laoghaire on Saturday and even the sun came out to party with us!  Can't wait for next year!  Here's a little taste of the festival...

Inanimate Beauty

Stone gallery presents Inanimate Beauty in conjunction with PhotoIreland Festival 2010. 

Inanimate Beauty is a solo exhibition of photographs and sculptures by the multi-discipline artist Emer Roberts.  I am slow to voice my opinion on the work as I really do think the work speaks for itself.  But what I will say is well apart from absolutely loving the exhibition the work is multi-layered with a beautiful sense of subtly and I love the way the tones in some of the photographic work are Caravaggio-esque.  At this point I suppose I should mention the subject matter is rats...rats are the artist's muse if you like.  The artist has an amazing ability to make you look at what you think you know, what you think is familiar to you and turn it around.  Check out Inanimate Beauty, Stone Gallery, 70 Pearse Street, Dublin 2.  The exhibition runs until 17th July. 

Here are some pics from the launch night...

I heart SoundCloud!

What is SoundCloud I hear you say...I'll let the SoundCloud team explain it.  

'SoundCloud is a new online audio platform that lets music professionals receive, send & distribute their music. Primarily SoundCloud provides an efficient and simple way for music professionals to exchange music they are working on in private settings allowing for easy collaboration and communication prior to a public release. With SoundCloud the music professionals can easily send & receive large amounts of tracks without cluttering their email inbox, having to make use of generic file sending services or manage their own server. For people who deal with music on a regular basis SoundCloud increases efficiency and improves their work flow by allowing them to focus on the music and not think about the actual files.'

Thanks SoundCloud team!  I heart SoundCloud it allows me listen to great music for free while I work, rest and play, check it out and sign up to-day...
