A Time Travellers Guide

A time tourist's odyssey through Temple Bar... and environs... in four parts is a 10 minute piece of audio commissioned by RTE for Lights Out Listening - part of the Made in Temple Bar Festival July 2011. Voices include Louis Lovett, Ruth McGill and, myself.


Sounds are never completely lost. Underneath the city time is all mixed up. Sounds from distant eras, like ancient artifacts, remain trapped underground until the earth is unsettled and they can escape...

This 10 minute piece takes an irreverent and freewheeling journey through the imagined aural pasts and possible futures of Temple Bar – where eras collide and overlap and nothing is quite predictable.

Inspired by the uncovering of a Viking settlement in Meeting House Square, Temple Bar in the heart of Dublin City, expect an audio adventure in the grand tradition of 2001 A Space Odyssey, Indiana Jones, Journey to the Centre of the Earth, and Gulliver’s Travels.
