Episode 2, ‘FIADH’S VOYAGE,’ is a call to the wild from Kerry-based Vincent Hyland, a Multimedia Artist, Coastal Ecologist, Wildlife Guide, Photographer, Wildlife & Underwater Film Maker. Vincent has created this magical maritime journey based on a gannet’s travels around his own native Derrynane, one of the most alluring and evocative landscapes on the Iveragh Peninsula.
Within that landscape, Little Skellig is home to 20,000 migrating pairs of gannets between May and September and is recognized as one of the world’s largest gannet sanctuaries. This colorful adventure, narrated by ICO violinist, Oonagh Keogh plunges us from the high skies to the high seas! From Gannets and Puffins to giant Basking Sharks and Ghostfish, the rocks and seas are alive with creatures people rarely see.
Vincent’s film was inspired by Felix Mendelssohn’s iconic Hebrides Overture, based on an unforgettable 1829 boat voyage taken by the composer. It is a masterpiece. In nine minutes, it conjures up the intense and rolling melodies, the music perfectly capturing the sea, its sense of drama and awe; calmer passages, meanwhile, convey stiller waters and more tranquil surroundings, with the waves never too far away.
Jӧrg Widmann and the Irish Chamber Orchestra perform this vibrant work enhancing the experience, riding the waves as we get a sneak insight into Kerry’s amazing marine life.
