Kevin Ryan’s latest album "To Sing To Ghosts" is released September 2019 on Spotify, Bandcamp & CD.
The music video for "Loons" was inspired by the album artwork, made using secondhand photographs gathered by Kevin while on tour across Europe. Filmmaker Fergal Brennan constructed the video using home movies (8mm & 16mm) he has collected from flea markets and charity shops over the years. Brief glimpses into everyday events - seaside holidays, visits to the zoo, family occasions. Like our memories, these images are unstable, but provide brief moments of clarity. A window into past lives.
Most locations are unknown, but it is comprised of:
1962 Fleadh Guaire, Ireland
1965 Le mans 24 hour race, France
1975 Sea voyage, Denmark
2001 ATP music festival, UK
Directed & Edited by Fergal Brennan
Digital Film transfer by Crystal Media, Dublin.
