Bray’s Wyvern Lingo announce the live streaming of Radio Somewhere

Wyvern Lingo has announced a livestream event in the National Concert Hall [NCH] on June 23rd. As part of their Sounding the Feminists Music Project Award announced this year, the band have collaborated with visual artist 1iing Heaney to create a radio fantasy hour.

Performing live from the NCH Wyvern Lingo alongside some very special guests will be taking part in a audio-visual feast called Radio Somewhere.

The performance will feature tracks from the trio’s critically acclaimed second album Awake You Lie which was released in February, accompanied by bespoke visuals designed by Heaney.   

Also hailing from Bray, Heaney uses CGI film and print to explore interactions between technology and geological time, has curated a piece of work to accompany this concert.

Together with host Muireann O’Connell, viewers will navigate Radio Somewhere’s fantasy world, which will include musical performances, spoken word contributions and audience participation through social media.

The commissioning scheme was expanded this year to take in projects and recording, which Karen Power, Chair of Sounding the Feminists says “ensured a more open, diverse and relevant reach across the wide range of music-making activities happening throughout Ireland today”.

Describing Wyvern Lingo’s performance as “imaginative, engaging and skilful audio-visual performance is a most worthy recipient of the award,” CEO of the NCH Robert Read added, “the last 15 months have been a most challenging period for the creative arts and we are honoured to be able to provide valuable funding to those working in the field at this time.”

The livestream kicks off at 8pm on Wednesday, June 23rd, and can be viewed on the National Concert Hall YouTube/Facebook pages and Wyvern Lingo’s Facebook page.
