My Love Story is our annual short film series chronicling the lives and passions of the the people who make Another Love Story what it is.
Clonakilty resident Toby Hatchett has been creating his stunning hi fi, and often sculptural soundsystems in his West Cork workshop, and luckily for us bringing them to ALS for a number of years now.
Each soundsystem is the perfect marriage and realisation of his passion for design, craftsmanship and hi fi sound – their presence at the festival has elevated the sound and appearance of our stages far beyond any standard sound installation could hope to.
They add a richness of atmosphere in any room they grace, and become as much a part of the performance as any act.
Toby has a long history of working on and devising divilment at festivals as a producer and dj – his My House venues and parties – run by a tight crew led by his wife Jess – are a trademark collection of irrevent craic, brilliant music, incredible design and sound. They are very often, literally the life and soul of the party.
Festivals are fleeting, ephemeral occurrences – so much of what happens behind the scenes goes by so fast and un noticed – so My Love Story looks to document the passions and stories of the people, like Toby, who make Another Love Story happen.
