Relocating The Soundscape
"Danny McCarthy is quite simply the godfather of sound art in Ireland (he’s also her most pioneering performance artist) the man who has influenced generations of seekers in sound. I first met and chronicled Danny’s work in 2009 in what turned out to be new departure for Nova: the programme mirrored the artist in its making with hundreds of noises on and noises off.
More short portraits and interviews followed plotting his work as project curator, artist, and pundit.
However when I invited Danny to participate in another portrait programme on his work he stood things literally on their head: and that is what we have here in a wild mix of music(s) and voices, places real, remembered and fabricated; memories and fantasies, musings.
They say the best place to start a journey is at the place where it began: but this place is silence and that ultimately is where Danny spends most of his time on the perimeters of noise and silence. "
