Abandoned Barn ~100 metres from my family home in Portaferry, County Down, NI
I noticed this barn's sound during a walk in the nearby fields of my family home, during the Covid-19 conditions. The dilapidated structure is played by the wind, producing creaks and groans; this combines with the surrounding area's soundscape, which includes occasional church bells, birds from within and outside of the barn, and machinic sounds from nearby agricultural activity.
