Songs for the head & the heart

For over twenty years, Other Voices has brought some of the world’s greatest musicians to the edge of Ireland. It is a self-proclaimed “part festival, part TV show, part fairytale”.

When the world came to a halt in 2020, our journey with Other Voices began. The now acclaimed ‘Courage’ series was created in conjunction with Tiny Ark, delivering 19 episodes of remote livestream concerts as an artistic response to COVID. Watched by millions of people globally, the series succeeded in its goal of lifting spirits through the power of music, and gave audiences courage when they needed it the most.Mobilising production during the early stages of the pandemic was a significant challenge, but we found new ways of working safely and reimagined what live broadcast could look like. It was this fresh vision and web based streaming infrastructure we built that brought us to the Church of St. James' in Dingle, 2020 to join Other Voices for their nineteenth iteration of the festival, and again in 2021 and 2022.

We have expanded on what we started with ‘Courage’, building on the visual quality of our multi-camera livestream set up. Our passion to authentically capture the unique atmosphere of the festival has allowed us to bring the magical feeling of sitting in the Church of St. James' live to homes all over the world.
On our latest journey to Dingle in 2022, we endeavoured to build on the visual quality of the series, providing premium performance content for Season 21 on RTÉ2. This is the third broadcast series of Other Voices that has been filmed and offline edited by Tiny Ark, in addition to the livestream, featuring International and Irish artists such as Paolo Nutini, Loyle Carner, Inhaler, Biig Piig, and Sorcha Richardson.

Songwriter and producer Gemma Dunleavy was making music and collaborating on projects long before releasing her debut EP ‘Up De Flats’ in 2020 which has since led her to performing at a string of festivals and sold out shows across Ireland.At Other Voices 2022, we filmed Gemma’s powerful performance of a selection of these songs at St. James’ Church and we had the opportunity to create a short artist profile piece with her, directed by Eilís Doherty.
For this profile piece, we captured Gemma’s thoughts in an intimate interview as she reflected on her performance in the Church, the trajectory that led her there and the honesty that’s at the core of the music she creates. Cutting between Gemma’s performance and a boat tour of Dingle’s peninsula with her and her friends, we set a visually nostalgic tone, enhanced with the use of super 8 film, while allowing Gemma’s energy to shine through in her music and performance.
