Sound recording

David Taylor and Olivia Hassett visited CONTACT Studio today to record the sound piece that will accompany the self guided walk to the various trees and artworks.  David Taylor is the narrator on the sound piece and Gerry Horan recorded and edited the work.

After a few hours, lots of water and a few spoons of honey to soothe David’s throat we completed the recording. We look forward to launching this sound piece at the opening of the exhibition on Friday September 29th.

A special thanks to Gerry Horan who runs CONTACT studio in RUA RED. CONTACT Studio is a professionally run and equipped recording studio based in South Dublin County. The studio is a South Dublin County Council’s Arts Office initiative and is subsidised to encourage artists, youth groups and community groups in the county to record and archive their work.

Opening night – Guided exhibition walk

cb 1 lo res

As part of the opening event for the Trinity College Trees Exhibition there will be a guided walk to all the exhibits by one of the project team.   The walk will take place on Friday 29th September between 5.15-5.45.  There will be a limited number of spaces.  Details on how to sign up for the guided walk will be posted nearer the time.  

If you are unable to book a slot on the guided walk don’t worry the team are also in the process of developing a sound piece that will accompany those wishing to take a self guided walk from Saturday the 30th of September until the end of the exhibition.  Once the walker brings their own headphones they can visit the works at their leisure.   In front of each of the chosen trees the team also plan to have an A4 stand with a brief description of the project and the positioning of each tree on a campus map.

There will be two versions of sound piece depending on which end of the campus you are starting will determine the listing of the trees and which sound piece you click on.  One version of the sound piece covers the walk if you are starting in the main square at the Oregon Maple.  The other version if you are starting at the Science Gallery.  

Included in the audio piece is a brief introduction to the Trinity Trees Project, the trees involved and the artworks commissioned in response to these trees.
