Title: Blue screen of Death
Description:
An error of the system? A bug inside? when did it start? it’s the actual government or it comes from the past?
it is a matter of memory, blank memory, it seems that we don’t really want see or hear.
A little echo just pass almost imperceptible and still reminds
the country has more than 50 years of war, a fight of sides where the people seems not to care, people that hold an economy of war, hopping some day more investments for study, social security, and health. They believe that the new upcoming politician will accomplished his promises.
Now our neighbour has freeze all diplomatic relations, no commerce between the two countries.
capitalism, socialism or communism? whatever they are, their real interests are themselves, not the people.

‘The Day Martina Was Born’ by Patrick Hough

Name: Patrick Hough
Location: Dublin, Ireland

Title: “The Day Martina Was Born”
Description:
‘The day Martina was born’ is a short experimental radio piece based on the oral history’s and stories passed on by the artists Uncle, who’s family grew up near Fanad head, County Donegal Ireland. Many of the stories passed on recounted the terrible poverty that faced the people of Ireland throughout the country’s history, memory’s of which faded fast in the country’s boom years of the Celtic tiger. Now that we once again face into the abyss of economic crisis these story’s and history’s of a not so distant Ireland remerge. This piece seeks to capture the atmosphere of these oral history’s incorporating all the embellishment and hyperbole that comes with them.
