Building Stories with Kieran Callanan (September ’17)

Written by on 3rd October 2017

Building Stories is hosted by Kieran Callanan, a local DJ affiliated with bass-oriented club night, Less Effect. Under his ‘Horus’ moniker, Kieran focuses on lower frequencies and the dance floor but on his Building Stories programme, it’s the threads of tales told from locals and beyond that ties everything together.

The music is eclectic, and in many ways the selection is dependent on whom Kieran has interviewed over the previous month. Some stories might be unsettling, some are funny, but they’re all told by real people – whether it’s a grandmother from Walton or a school kid in Birkenhead. Everyone has a story to tell and Kieran is out to collect them.

This month is the finale of his series and a bittersweet goodbye to Melodic Distraction. Telling us a little of his own story and letting us in on the secrets of his next creative endeavour, Kieran gives us an emotional tour de fore accompanied with an eclectic blend of music, new and old.
