“Generator is Dublin Community Televisions (DCTV) newest magazine arts show supported by the BAI’s Sound and Vision scheme. The show will be taking an in-depth look at the contemporary arts scene in Dublin and how it has flourished over the past four years despite the recession. The show will be aimed at artists, arts workers, and those with an interest in the visual arts.

This week we feature artist and musician Matt Hedigan form A4 Sounds during his first exhibition, we visit The Market Studios where we have a natter with Deirdre Morrissey & Claire Behan. We also profile the last artist from the Generator Group Exhibition Laura De Burca.”

We have uploaded all the Wolf Visuals from our Wolf Party to Vimeo so you can have a gawk!!


Due to a massive power cut in the Dark Horse on the Night we could not show any of them. Even after a few hours changing fuses and calling in an electrician we could just get power from a few sockets 🙁

We will do it again with sillier visuals for our next fundraiser. Thanks to Maeve Brosnan and Lisa Crowne we have lots of brightly coloured and glittered T.VS ready to go!!

Thanks again to Wolfgang NoesArt;  Pauliina Jokenin, Maeve Brosnan, Donal Holland and Lisa Crowne for putting together the animations. I think you will agree you can’t tell who works in the industry and those that maybe just winged it the week before!!

Special Thanks to everyone that sent us wolf images

Thanks to everyone that has submitted photographs to Matt’s Portrait Project already. For those that still want the final deadline is 20th July.

981669_10200478355294643_1892005899_o

If you missed the first call out’ Matt is looking for people to email him an interesting photograph of themselves, from any angle or in any position. He is aiming for 100 images in total which he will then draw, ink or paint in a range of style which will be exhibited in September. Sales from the exhibition will be in aid of the A4 Sounds Studio in Harold’s Cross.

“I’m going to spend 30 seconds on some, maybe an hour on others so hopefully there will be a fairly wide spectrum. Some of them might actually be alright, a lot of them will more than likely be dodgy as fuck. Buts that’s grand.”

Rules for submissions;

No crap selfies please.
No pictures of you scoring a goal for your local Under11′s team, taken by your dad, you get the idea.
A picture you took especially for this project, sitting down, standing up, profile, whatever you think really.

You can email photos to mhedigan19@gmail.com.

Photos from the First Public Oculus Rift Demo in Ireland at A4 Towers

This was one of the most fun events A4 Sounds has hosted. Thanks to everyone that came along you made the day and especially to Fabio for sharing his “toys” and letting everyone play.

The day was really informal, hands on with lots of screaming and laughing taking place. We met lots of lovely new and interesting people, we hope to see again. If you have something you want to demo, show off or share get in touch as there is definitely a great bunch of people to test your ideas on.

We have some videos of peoples reactions which better illustrate the craic that was had but we want to clean them up a little bit before putting them online. For now here are some photos.

If you missed the event but really really wanted to come along, Fabio will be back in a months time on his return to Ireland. Keep an eye out here or on Facebook for dates.
