The Sound of Lacken
February 18, 2021 | ELEMENT: air | audio | 1 minute read

A wet and windy Winter’s day at Lacken. This track starts out by a stream at the lower end of the farm, as we then skirt around the fields heading towards the south. There’s a machine working nearby and traffic passing along the bypass road, which passes through the farm and splitting it in two. We cross under the road and take shelter from the rain in one of the old sheds at the back of the yard. Trucks come and go here. A forklift moves around. The rain drips in through holes in the roof and the wind rushes past. We leave the yard behind as the rain eases off, heading out into the fields and up Lacken Hill. The birds are trying their best in this weather. The wind picks up the higher we go, blowing a Wexford flag as we reach the top of the hill. Then it’s off into the woodland to the east as the rain comes in again.
