Short Film (Full Length) – 2005 Music Arts/Culture

Start video player

SJD (aka Sean James Donnelly), winner of the 2013 Taite Music Prize, talks samples, lyrics and home studios in this series made for secondary school music students. Donnelly demonstrates his fondness for old synthesisers (he admits liking their crankiness, and the way they make their most interesting sounds as they start to fall apart). Talking a couple of years after the release of second album Lost Soul Music, he traces the origins of Lost Soul single ‘A Boy’, and its music video — which features his son, and was animated and co-directed by his brother Kieran.

I guess lyrically it’s about the difference between innocence and experience and how people can lose that innocence as they grow into any adult.
– Sean Donnelly on his song ‘A Boy’
