re-Living the Tradition!

Today, 25 of August 2014, one year ago Ilse and Maarten recorded the shot that would become the magic opening of Living the Tradition. We were at Cape Clear Island, Ireland’s southern most inhabited island. We had set up the camera, microphone and cello at the highest point of the island at 5:30am, facing the North East and we were waiting for sunrise. There were quite some clouds at the horizon. Then suddenly rays of golden light broke through the clouds. The photographic composition was perfect, Maarten pressed the record button and Ilse did her most inspiring performance ever of the air Cape Clear, while the sun slowly rose above the clouds and put the landscape and the cello on fire…what an incredible moment! It was clear that this was going to be the opening shot for the film!

Coorheen, Loughrea

This is a photo from the top of the road at Coorheen, Loughrea. The cows were curious at me packing away my cello. To the left is what was once the wide avenue driveway that led down to Fanny Powers house. At the bottom of the slope is the lough. I think these are the…Continue Reading
