Seamus Fogarty is a London-based Irish singer-songwriter. Combining alternative, folk, and electronica styles, Seamus released his 3rd album, A Bag of Eyes (via Domino Recording Company) on November 6th 2020.

A wholly different sonic prospect to 2017’s much-lauded The Curious Hand, Seamus (weary of the guitar, and seeking something darker than its predecessor) chose to lean more heavily on synths and drum machines, and additionally, to self-produce. “It was about creating and exploring new sound worlds,” Fogarty says. “Experimenting with new ways of incorporating electronics into the songwriting process, and in some cases dispensing with conventional songwriting processes altogether.”

On A Bag OF Eyes, there is industrial judder, slacker-fuzz guitar, a cacophony of saxophones. On one track, ring-modulated drums kick in with oscillating fury. Another moves from 90s’ shit-hole grunge venue to sleazy jazz joint in four minutes. Whilst on a third, a synth is deployed with the express purpose of sawing the listeners’ ears in half, Fogarty attests.

However, beneath them lie fragments of melody, image, drone; a flicker of banjo, an electronic pulse. “I like to purposely make music that clashes with the more traditional stuff that I do,” he says.

Fogarty’s celebrated storytelling is at home in this new sound world, rambling between the fantastical and the mundane: nuns playing volleyball, horses on clifftops, lives glimpsed through rear windows. There are echoes of his own past, the loss of dear friends. Ireland, London, and two views of San Francisco, 15 years apart. It is bus stops, house fires and Jimmy Stewart.

This week, Creative Broadcast & Film Production are offering another great industry event to attend. We have a script development masterclass with award winning scriptwriter Ailbhe Keogan.

Her first feature film, Run & Jump was selected as part of the Berlin Talent Campus Script Station and the Sundance Institute’s lab. Directed by Oscar-nominated Steph Green, it premiered at Tribeca in 2012 and the script went on to win numerous awards including a 2014 IFTA nomination and a Zebbie for best screenplay 2014.

Her second feature film, Joy & Mully, went into production in 2018, a co-production between Zentropa Films (Denmark) and Subotica (Ireland) She is currently working on Sidelined, a feature film for Parallel Films and the Irish Film Board. Ailbhe was selected for Guiding Lights 8, the UK film industry’s leading mentoring programme. She was under the mentorship of Alex Garland.

Ailbhe’s short film script, Take Me Swimming, was one of four films to be funded by the Irish Film Board Focus Shorts scheme in 2016 and premiered at the Cork Film Festival 2017. It stars Barry Ward, Olwin Fouere and B.J. Hogg. Ailbhe is on the board of the Kerry Film Festival and has worked with the Youth Justice programme for many years in conjunction with KDYS.
