Soprano and contemporary musician Kim Sheehan performs excerpts from her album-in-progress All That Is Sound, recorded with her husband (a producer and composer) at her home during lockdown, exploring the precious personal and private experience of listening to music. Inspired by the relationships people form with records, from the singer working through microphone, production and mixing, to a listener experiencing that record via their headphones at home - "it's become a labour of love, and something we can play to our kids in times to come as a reminder of this quiet time of opportunity and self reflection" says Kim.
Kim's performance took place live on Youtube at 8pm, 16 June - watch it back here:
