Peter Doran – Live at The House
Creating ‘The World is Wide’ Music Video with Peter Doran, from the new album ‘Outlines’
Back in February I went to see the musical poet himself Peter Doran do his thing on stage. It was in a little venue on the Northside of Dublin, Ireland called ‘The House’.
It was a blustery wet evening so I was a little hesitant to head out, but I knew Peter is the type of person who would have gone out in the rain for me; so I literally threw caution to the wind and I jumped on the bus.
Myself and the ‘always kind’ Therese Fallon sat at a little table with one candle in the middle and had a glass of vino as we warmed up in the cosy fairy-light lit room.
The show was as expected; magical. To my surprise Peter was going to try out some of his newest songs. These would soon be recorded and turn in to his latest album ‘Outlines’ that is to be released this week on iTunes (24th of Oct 2014).
I have been a friend and a big fan of Peter since he had us along to document the recording of his last album ‘Overhead the Stars’ in Grouse Lodge Studios. I had not come across his music before then, but was hooked as soon as I heard his songs. Peter’s visual, clever use of words and his beautiful view of the world around him is enthralling.
As I sat in the warm room that night listening to his new songs, he started to play the first few chords of ‘The World is Wide‘ and I am sure I fell into a deep trance.
Peter Doran – Experiencing Fame
Haunting and intriguing, his melody and words tapped into memories that I had almost forgotten, or… were they even mine? I wasn’t sure, but I did know that I felt an enchantment falling over me. I could see the film in my mind. It is so exciting when something tug‘s at your creativity and I spoke with Peter after the set about doing the video for ‘The World is Wide‘ with him.
Little did I know that getting on that bus, on that blustery night would be the start of an 8 month magical music video adventure….
I am looking forward to the release of the music video and getting it to people’s eyes. But most of all I hope it will spread the music and ethos of the lovely Peter Doran. He is one person Ireland should be proud of.
If you are interested in hearing more about the development and making of the music video, I will be posting part two after the video goes public. Stay tuned. 🙂
Here’s the teaser trailer for our new short ‘Stifle’.
It’s a 7 minute urban thriller, written and directed by myself, with Lucy FX Jones taking care of the Cinematography. The film stars Susan Barrett and Alan Sherlock, and wait until you see what they’ve done. Both delivered really stunning performances!!
Full details of the project, including movie poster, cast and crew info and behind the scenes photos are available at kerbute.com/stifle
