En Splendo Isoleco (Esperanto) “In splendid isolation”
En Splendo Isoleco, a dream sequence by members of the artistic community trapped in a #COVID19 cave of crushing hopelessness and despair.
An evocative soundtrack with a background of incessant dripping water continually reminding them of their predicament – eliciting feelings of confusion hurt & frustration, – will they ever perform, express & share their creativity again and still all the while searching the elements for a way forward to escape this man made earthly hell.
There is a way out of this situation somewhere, somehow.
Be happy in your art, never stop creating.
We can beat this….together.
Please share this video wherever you can, thank you.
I am a session bassist and contemporary composer based in Ireland, most of my studio work these days is done from my own studio via Dropbox etc. I am also a member of Derek Ryan's touring band.
I play Double bass and Bass guitar and most recently a derivative of the Chapman Stick, the NS Stick and several other instruments when I must :-)
I have two solo instrumental albums on release called "End of a longer day" and "A small shadow" and my sister Susan and I are currently writing and recording a series of Audiodramas/Books called the The Todalie Stories, a series for kids of all ages including adults that refuse to grow up. comprising Text, Audio & Illustrations (by Vitya Malirsh), inspired by special people, the unseen little folk, and other fantastic creatures that inhabit the woods, streams and lakes on this island .
The stories explore the concept of triumph over adversity and illustrate the importance of inclusiveness, the powerful impact of community spirit, bringing together disparate groups to achieve a common goal in a respectful inclusive space.
The first story (abridged) is available as a Podcast called The Todalie Stories on all good podcast providers and on www.todalie.com.
During lockdown I completed a course in Music Composition for Games in Pulse and Griffith College Dublin, and am currently involved in several exciting writing projects so watch this space!
