Vocal Chords

For the last six months or so I have been working as one of a small team of producers on a documentary series entitled Vocal Chords. The series will be presented by Iarla O Lionaird (The Gloaming, Afro-Celt Soundsystem), and focuses on the human voice and the roles that song and singing play in diverse cultures around the world.

My work has mostly involved researching various wonderful singing traditions at home and abroad, and hopping between islands big and small with Iarla to interview fascinating people, from Peter Gabriel to Treasa Ni Mhiollain, iFagiolini to the Cenestra Township Choir from South Africa. Vocal Chords is an Athena Media production, and will be broadcast in full on RTÉ Lyric FM in May 2015.
