The Sound of Lakefield
January 15, 2021 | ELEMENT: air | audio | 1 minute read

It’s a windy, dry and warm Summer’s day at Lakefield. This track starts out in a barn at the entrance to the fields. A combine harvester sits waiting for its annual call-up as the wind rattles through the building. We head outside, where the wind blows down along the side of the barn, then we move down the lane towards the fields. We reach the hedgerows that run along the southerly edge of the fields, busy with birds, bees and butterflies before heading out into the barley. It’s a little more sheltered at first, until we reach the woods at the northerly edge of the field. The wind picks up again and blows through the barley and the trees, as further away can be heard the trains pushing through the countryside on the line to the north.
