Some geographical locations are inextricably linked to our personal memories. If such a sonic relationship was built over time, even years, and through multiple visits and experiences, then these locations can sometimes lose their unique identity as characteristics blur into a single ‘memory place’.
This short soundscape is partly sound memory, part fiction. It distills memories of play growing up as a child by the sea- the sense of discovery, of development, even fear- culminating in the joyful release that is the ascent back to the surface.
The field recordings were captured in Doonbeg, West Clare (Ireland) during summer 2014 using an Edirol R44 and an Audio Technica BP4025 X/Y field recording microphone. Edited in Logic Pro. Photo was taken during the same trip, in Gorey, Co. Wexford.
