Reverberations is an essential new six-part series on RTÉ Radio One Extra - the series continues on Monday 15th October, at 6pm.

In the series, six of Ireland’s foremost poets and spoken word artists speak about their work, and perform a poem inspired by a particular soundscape in a unique location.

Listen to Episode One of Reverberations, featuring Abby Oliviera, above.

In the latest edition, multi-genre writer, performer, editor, and path-breaking multimedia educator Dave Lordan performs his poem Love Commands The Neighbourhood, dedicated to his friend Karl Parkinson.

The poem evokes the alienating and non-linguistic neighbourhood noises that he experienced living in a housing estate in Co. Wicklow, and the attempt to cleanse his hatred and aggression towards the area. Dave speaks about wining a poetry competition at the age of 12, his various books and how he feels he has expressed all he can in poetry.
