An introduction to....... the Olllam

Here is a short introductory video to one of the outstanding albums of last year. There is also a longer documentary version on their YouTube channel for anyone that might be interested.

This looks at the creative process behind the making of the album by musicians based in Ireland and USA with the compositions evolving through Skype calls and internet files zipping across the Atlantic.  It just shows what can be done with in the new digital/internet age.

It documents the transatlantic collaboration, process, and personal histories that went into creating ".the olllam.", The musicians involved were John McSherry, Tyler Duncan, and Michael Shimmin. 

Check out our album review which we did last year as it has the various links to the artists sites.  Also check out this Devon Leger review that we have also added to the album review section.

The only problem with this documentary is its about 20 mins too short. Great informative and very well shot.

I really think this doc has serious potential in every respect for Trad connections. I love the creative technical documentaries that show how music and image are combined, where audio and visual merge with new technologies. Going global is really occurring. I haven't decided whether I'd want a hologram musician(s) appearing in my kitchen playing Trad Irish just yet, as I've always preferred "live" performances. The technology of today deserves serious discussion and implementation. Good of you for posting topic.
