    Video // Becca Folkes: It’s Beginning to look a lot like Christmas

    Sometimes you meet artists who just have it, they have it without even trying. If you want to call it the X Factor, do, but it’s something special. One such artist is Becca Folkes. For Christmas we had some people come into the studio at work and perform a Christmas song. Some did originals, other take on classics.

    I never heard of Becca Folkes before that but herself and the people that surround her have everything down to a T! They know what they are supposed to be doing, they’re pros. They come, don’t complain, get stuck into the session and when they the rehearsing stops and the performing starts, they ooze quality, with Becca, the shining star front and centre.

    An incredible talent, remember where you heard the name first!

    I recorded this track, Mr Phil Maltz, did the magic with the cameras and lights and shiny things..


  • New Radio Show on RTE 2XM: The London Ear

    New Radio Show on RTE 2XM: The London Ear

    The London EarSince I moved to London, I found it a bit hard trying to keep up with the arts and culture world in Dublin. To be honest it’s near impossible,especially when Culture Cafe focuses on that. So unfortunately it became time to put Culture Cafe to bed for a bit. I’m not saying it’s the end of it. Once I get settled in London, I may turn Culture Cafe into a podcast.

    Culture Cafe has been running for nearly four years. The first episode was broadcast on DCUfm in September 2009. The show ran on DCUfm for two years before moving to RTE 2XM, where it has been running since July 2011.

    Now though, seeing as it’s time to move things on, I’m hosting a music show called The London Ear on RTE 2XM on Culture Cafe’s old timeslot on RTE 2XM, Wednesdays at 1400 and the repeat of the show on Sunday nights 2100.

    The show focuses on new music with a look at those based in Ireland and the UK, especially Irish bands that may be on tour or live in the UK.

    You can listen live here and you can get podcasts of the show here.

    If you are in a band and would like to get involved get in touch nessy @ nessymon.com (Take out the gaps) and yes, I am trying to take a photo at a different London Underground Station every week and turn it into The London Ear.

  • 3D Modeling: iPhone

    College is now coming to an end, yay! Here’s what I did for my 3D assignment 1. I modelled an iPhone. Happy enough with how it turned out, what do you think? I quite enjoyed getting to know Cinema 4D a little better, hopefully, I’ll start making some little things on a ongoing basis.
