EVENT | One's to Watch... Audio Adapter

Friday 10 Sep 2021 - 7:00pm

Special online screening of music documentary ‘Audio Adapter’ complete with an exclusive interview with the creative team behind it.

What’s it like to be a performer without an audience?

The COVID-19 pandemic threw the development and career trajectory of many local artists into complete disarray. It’s well known that music has always been an essential lifeblood to this City and with the complete closure of many venues, and mixed messages about the potential to re-open, it created a uniquely difficult climate for musicians. So how did a number of performers from the North West deal with it? With an abundance of resilience, determination, innovation and a full smattering of Derry humour.

All of this is covered in the new short ‘Audio Adapter.’

‘Audio Adapter’ is a new short film developed by the Nerve Centre’s Ones to Watch group, in conjunction with the Shortcuts Project funded by the Department of Communities through NI Screen as part of the Special Renewal Programme. Ones to Watch Online is supported by Film Hub NI. 

Local young film programmers Ross Wilders, Sophie Davidson and Gai Gai Xie developed the idea through a series of creative workshops and film screenings. They were then paired with rising film maker Fiachra O’Longain who directed and edited the piece with the Ones to Watch team working alongside his crew.

It is a thoughtful, insightful celebration and exploration of what this unprecedented moment in time has meant to some of the city’s brightest talents. The film includes interviews with artists such as Glenn Rosborough, rising stars Cherym, The Wood Burning Savages’ lead singer Paul Connolly, rap group Craic Pipe and young up and coming singer songwriter Cora Harkin.~

This online event will be available from Friday 10 September at 7pm during a very important week, where the future of live events is at the forefront of talks at Stormont.
