David Carroll, Irish songwriter based in France, pays tribute to James Joyce with his new song, « Holding on to love ».
Joyce condensed the 15.000 verses and 30 years of Homer's Odyssey into a one-day novel.
Joseph Carroll, David's Grandfather, adapted Joyce's masterpiece into a one hour stage play (Mr Bloom and the Cyclops).
David synthetizes Ulysse's adventures into a 3'30" pop song. A nocturnal odyssey through city bars and backstreets, also a wink to another of Joseph Carroll's plays "The Barroom monks".
« People do not know how dangerous love songs can be " wrote Joyce.
