This week joining our new Awesome host and Filmmaker Mia Mullarkey for a very special chat is Filmmaker Myles O’Reilly.
Fni Wrapchat is mixed by Bedford, Produced by the Headstuff Podcast Network and Sponsored by Film Equipment hire and Wildcard Distribution.
Myles O’Reilly is a musician, composer and filmmaker from Dublin, Ireland. Since first lifting a camera in 2010, multi tasking O’Reilly has filmed, directed and edited over 100 music video promo’s and 20+ music documentaries of Irish musicians at home and abroad, some of which include Glen Hansard, Villagers, Imelda May, Lisa O’Neill, Ye Vagabonds, Sinead O’Connor and Lisa Hannigan alongside other International artists such as Hollywood sound track virtuoso Ernst Reijseger, Icelandic artists Soléy, Múm and Amiina, US soul phenomenon Janelle Monae and UK folk trio The Staves.
Early life as a working musician began for Myles in 2003 with the band Juno Falls. Signed for two albums by Sony UK and then V2 records, Juno Falls disbanded in 2010. Ten years later and in a global pandemic lockdown, Myles returned to making music and has since composed, recorded and released a plethora of works in the ‘ambient’ music genre under the moniker Indistinct chatter.
Since beginning a Pateron account in 2018 enabling followers to fund his film projects, O’Reilly’s camera lens is increasingly more focused on discovering and supporting little-known emerging artists, to help “represent some of the most talented but hard to pigeonhole musical visionaries in Ireland today”. Now almost a full time vocation, his efforts to seek out and endorse new music extends to the curation of an annual rising-artist stage at the renown Body&Soul festival, and the production of a critically acclaimed web series This Ain’t No Disco, co-created with eminent Irish broadcaster Donal Dineen of ‘No Disco’ fame.
