This new initiative will give more and more artists the opportunity of performing in a professional setting, and broadcasting the show to a global audience, and also get paid in the process. Live streaming is absolutely crucial to supporting artists and musicians especially through the pandemic, which has devastated not only live music performers, but venues as well. The Sound House hopes that expanding their virtual venue initiative will bring much needed support to the amazing talent Ireland has to offer, as well as one of Dublin’s favourite live music venues!
The first night of this new platform will launch on April 3rd with rising Dublin indie-rock band InBetween Honey. Tickets can be purchased at TheSoundHouse.ie
Established in 2017, the Sound House quickly became a popular venue for live music events, late night clubbing, comedy, and film, hosting the best of local and international artists.
The venue was shut down by the COVID pandemic, but in late 2020, began live streaming shows with great help from Live Performance Support Scheme with the Department of Culture & Arts and the Live Venue Collective. Due to the success of these live streams, the Sound House has decided to expand their virtual venue initiative. They plan to have up to five shows a week, continuing to host the best of local performances to become Ireland’s premium live streaming venue.
To achieve this huge goal, the venue has assembled a team of dedicated experts to execute and deliver a superior live stream experience. Starting with their in-house booker Colm Slattery of Fluttertone who has over 15 years experience in the music industry in Ireland, live events and sound. They also brought in the well known FEND Media to be responsible for all the video production. Neil Doughty, FEND owner, is a video production and live streaming expert and has worked tirelessly through the entire pandemic to support artists and to keep the heart of live music pumping. The Sound House’s online streaming platform is the secret sauce that helps bring it all together. The venue’s digital development strategy has been led by Dean White, Director of Kraft Agency Limited.
It has been largely invested in brand new enhanced lighting production as well as state of the art cameras to bring the shows fully to life. These are not your typical living room live streams, as the Sound House shows have an incredible high production quality capability, completed with high skilled technicians running them and making sure that each gig showcases the artist in the best possible way.
The venue has also revamped their website into a user-friendly ticketing platform. When fans buy tickets to live streamed shows, they get sent a link, and the show can be streamed on any device on the Sound House’s very own Live Streaming Web App.
The Sound House Live Streams are also fully COVID compliant, and management is taking all precautions to ensure the health and safety of staff and performers.
The future is now and in The Sound House! Sit back, relax and enjoy the greatest live shows from the most comfortable seat you could ever have: your couch!
