The Sound of Blackcastle
February 22, 2023 | ELEMENT: air | audio | 1 minute read

Blackcastle – 17th August 2020 A soft day at Blackcastle. This track starts out in the yard with the rain falling gently, and a door banging in the light breeze. We move inside, taking shelter from the rain inside a shed storing this year’s crop for Waterford. Harvested just before the dry spell ended, and ready for collection in the coming days, it sits there waiting as the rain runs down the corrugated roof. Moving back outside, through a narrow alley between two buildings, with the rain falling in the puddles. We head out to the back of the yard and down along the River Greese, arriving at the harvested fields. The rain eases off. The breeze picks up a little as traffic passes on the road nearby, and birds come out of cover.
