I had some short stories, poems and photographs to share ... and so here I am

The Magic Of Ireland

 
I've finally got around to marrying up my photos of Ireland with one of my original piano compositions. I hope you like it. Click twice on the play button!

that was awesome. the music was so soothing i was playing it at work while i edited....

Bonnie Jacobs said...

Oh, Seamus, you are so multi-talented! A writer, a composer, an artist with the camera. Now I want to visit Ireland, land of my ancestors (one branch of them, anyway). And I want to listen to your music all day long. I have copied the HTML stuff to embed this in my blog, but now I wonder which one. Maybe all of them, it's so good. No, I'll limit myself to Words from a Wordsmith. If I shouldn't be doing that, would you come tell me, please? I'll remove it, if I shouldn't be posting it there. But I love the music and the photos and the great job you did of combining the two. Thank you.

Simply gorgeous! You've made me nostalgic and homesick for a place I've never been. Or that I haven't been to yet.

I wish I could find better words to express just how much I love this. It's perfect.

Shameless said...

Moonrat - Thank you. :-) I hope you didn't start editing in a few Irish phrases and words by mistake! lol

Bonnie - You are too kind. :-) Of course there is absolutely no problem "embedding" the video on your blog. I am honoured that you would want to. :-) I'm glad you liked it - I certainly enjoyed putting it together. It's a shame not to share the photos, which make me go all gooey! :-)

Bleeding Espresso - Thanks. :-) Yes, "places we haven't been to yet" is better. It's like, there are no strangers, just people we haven't met yet. :-)

Bonnie Jacobs said...

Seamus, I'm back to tell you that I mentioned you on my blog today because You Make My Day:

So good I played it twice.
The music is sublime with the photos.
Lovely!

ChristineEldin said...

I can't view these videos until we get back to the States because our service is as slow as dial-up.

But I'll still be back for your other stuff!!
:-)

Absolute Vanilla (& Atyllah) said...

Our paths have crossed, only in different times - I recognised so many of those beautiful scenes as places where I've trudged, sat and marvelled. Your pics filled with longing for the Emerald Isle - though not the weather! Beautifully done Seamus.
Now what I want to know is when are you going to try your hand at a Celtic tune for all your other piccies that I'm sure you must have! :-)

Julie at Virtual Voyage said...

This was marvellous - never been to Ireland, but couldn't get over some of the resemblance to the Celtic areas of Scotland, Plockton; Lewis etc.

Had looked carefully at the photos previously - doesn't it bring them alive putting them in an evocative format with your music....

Billy said...

Fantastic. A multimedia experience. Thanks!

Julie at Virtual Voyage said...

re name change; friends were googling a vjourney which was er,rather different...(: Too many vv's to pick!

Shameless said...

Bonnie - I am blushing ... again. Thank you.

Lane - Twice? :-) Thank you. You'll be humming it next! lol :-)

Christine - Ah, the Church Lady is defrocked! Hello and welcome. What would we do without fast connections, eh? :-)

Absolute Vanilla - Thanks! The celtic tune will have to be on something other than the piano - the banjo? lol

Julie - Yes, it's so much better to present the pics like this. We bring out the DVDs to show visitors. It's an easier watch than trudging through albums of hundreds of pics. :-) The new name is great, by the way.

Billy - Thanks. I'm getting quite hooked on multimedia. And if my beloved piano gets a look in too, that's a bonus! :-) She's crying out for a good tuning, though. That's another call I must make tomorrow! :-)

Jessica Schneider said...

That's the best way to visit Ireland, I'd say. I swear, I do all my traveling in books and through your blog. I've been physically unable to travel but my mind drifts all the time. Now I can say I've been to Ireland. Thanks for the ticket.

Shameless said...

Jessica - It was a pleasure to be your guide. :-) And that was just a taster!

Jessica Schneider said...

You should check out the Vivaldi flower film on my blog. It's great and I think you'd really like it.

Shameless said...

Jessica - Yeah, I checked that out earlier today and loved it. The ending is powerful ... not what I expected. And it was for Sesame Street? Whew. Kids were so switched on then. :-) That union advert was also a HOOT! lol

Eric Valentine said...

Seamus you put on a wonderful show and I really enjoyed your music.

Being from England I am familier with some of your sites, but it's always refreshing to get another look from time to time.
Very nicely done. :)

Shameless said...

Eric - Thank you. Your message just slipped in here as I was responding to another! :-) I'm glad you liked the presentation.

Jessica Schneider said...

I'm glad you enjoyed it. That's such a great film--they didn't have that on Sesame Street when I was a kid.

That Union Ad is just the best. "We got broads in the street directing traffic so your kids don't get hit by some hard-on..."

Marja said...

My husband and others have visited Ireland and told me how beautiful it was. I can see why. Great pics.
They also told me of the musical abilities of the Irish. I can see why. You piano piece is wonderful.
You have so many talents plus such a nice man

Beatriz's suitcase contents said...

Seamus, I am glad I came by to visit (via Bleeding Espresso). Your work is surprising and bright, you have a good eye. I will come back.

Shameless said...

Jessica - I'm going to send that Union ad link on to some people who would just LOVE that humour! :-)

Marja - You are too kind! :-)

Beatriz - Hello and welcome! :-) Good to have you stop by. It's a bit of a mixed bag here most of the time. lol :-)

Jessica Schneider said...

Yes. Do it.

Pearl said...

That's beautiful music. I didn't know you composed music as well.

Shameless said...

Jessica - There've been roars of laughter among some workmates today ... reminds us of The Sopranos!

Pearl - Thank you. :-) I just wish there was a lot more time to do all the things I love doing! Same goes for everyone, I suppose.

aims said...

I have come to your blog because I was awarded a Roaring Lion and took it seriously enough to come have a peek at its origination.

Now I find why. You have captured the word talent and portray it in everything you do.

I loved this - the sound of the tinkling piano and the beautiful pictures made me yearn for another time.

Your story on the dresses took my breath away.

What a force you are in this world!

Julie at Virtual Voyage said...

Just come across this:
http://blogtrotta.blogspot.com/- but don't think Shameless Cows would have quite the same ring to it somehow..!

(We had these in London a few years back).

Shameless said...

Aims - Hello and welcome. Your kind words are really appreciated. I'm glad you like the stuff here. I look forward to checking out your site too. :-)

Julie - Yes, shameless cows! I like that! lol

chiefbiscuit said...

That is so special. Beautiful music and pictures to go with it - I was transported for a few minutes there and grateful to you for that experience. You are talented for sure begorrah! (Loved the plaque about nothing happened here - priceless!)

Shameless said...

CB - Thanks! :-) And yes, the "nothing happened" thing had me in stitches when I saw it in Ireland.

puresunshine said...

the music is great! played it pretty loud at work! and gr8 pictures! u shud come up with a complilation! :)

Shameless said...

Puresunshine - Loud at work? You'll get me arrested for disruption! lol I'm glad you liked it.

Sarah Hina said...

Is there *anything* you can't do?!

You are a true Renaissance man, Seamus. And the music is so lovely and yearning that I can feel your love for Ireland in every note. And with the photos, too, there is such a pull.

Loved this. :)

Wanderlust Scarlett said...

So beautiful, as always, Seamus. This is in my top 5 favorites, and so is Venice, but nothing else you've done has quite been able to touch the Portugal compilation.

Please do a cd soon, so that I can listen to you play when I'm not at the computer.

Scarlett & Viaggiatore

Shameless said...

Sarah - Thank you. Rennaisance man? I'm blushing. :-)

Wanderlust - Thanks for your kind words. Yes, Portugal has attracted close to 5,000 hits on Youtube now, and that can't just be family and friends! I've had a few requests for that music on CD ... maybe one day I might just make up a little compilation as a gift. :-)

Eight ships were grounded or sunk by Tip, leaving 44 fishermen dead or unaccounted for. A Chinese freighter broke in half as a result of the typhoon, though its crew of 46 were rescued.[3] The rainfall led to over 600 mudslides throughout the mountainous regions of Japan and flooded more than 22,000 homes; 42 people died throughout the country, with another 71 missing and 283 injured.[3] River embankments broke in 70 places, destroying 27 bridges, while about 105 dikes were destroyed.

Further, it is possible that a number of genetic recombination events around the disease locus (location on a chromosome) could have resulted in the disease being associated with HLA-B54 in the Japanese and HLA-A11 in Koreans. After further study, it was concluded that a DPB susceptibility gene is located near the HLA-B locus at chromosome 6p21.3. Within this area, the search for a genetic cause of the disease has continued.

This is an amazing blog. Though I am not on the trip, I feel I am learning so much looking at the pictures and reading the summary of each day and the comments posted. I see how this trip truly is a life changing experience. May the memories help all of you in the lives you live.

NAIL COURSESintermarriageAll the buildings, paintings, and basically culture of the time look incredible in pictures, and probably even more amazing when you're actually there. The light post in the center of the street looks magnificent and probably even better when it is hand lit at night time. It's also good to know all these buildings that hold so much history are still up, and the style still seems impeccable despite it being built during the 14th century.
