When doors opened on Ireland's newest local venue back in 2017, nothing could prepare them for what would happen. The immediate success of the idea saw music, comedy, film, and club nights taking hold and establishing a well-loved community. Then the Covid pandemic came along and the doors were closed. This isn't the middle-ages, though, and with modern technology the Sound House was able to maintain its steady flow of culture. By hiring a team of digital experts, including Colm Slattery from Fluttertone, they have been able to shift their focus onto live streaming.
So far, so good! The live streaming events have been just as popular as the in house events that came before them. This was definitely a green light to go ahead and grow the concept. With the help of their new team, a brand new agenda has been drawn up. Now The Sound House are able to produce high quality live streams up to five times per week. The idea has shown itself to be scalable and once underway, it is hoped that the Sound House can join the big names that people naturally choose for live streams.
We don't know how much longer these lockdowns will go on for, but as society adapts to new forms of culture and entertainment, the live stream is being taken up as a popular form of media. A half-way between watching the video and actually being there, watching at the time of performance is always something extra special. In the future, when people are given back their freedoms, it can be certain that live streams will remain an integral part of how people enjoy their music. We can't all get to the show, and by unleashing the power of digital on the live music scene, we are able to invite the globe to each event.
Music fans around the world are feeling the emptiness of the live-scene. By having quality live acts available online in this way, it surely is something to gather around and see. Finding that live magic of expertly performed music is within our reach once more. The Sound House is set to begin their new wave of supreme live streams on April 3rd. The headline is Dublin's fast-rising InBetween Honey. Why not book your place today?
