Reveil 2021 Dawn Chorus, stereo recordings of Cratloe Woods, Ireland.
Greg Mac Conmara, a environmental sound recordist, capturing varying soundscapes on the island of Ireland.
The area where recording took place, Cratloe Forest Recreation Area, known locally as Cratloe Woods. 13km east of the woods is Limerick City, population approx. 95,000, with approx. 162,000 in the greater metropolitan area, & the same distance west is Shannon Airport, the international airport of the region, & south, just 1.25km away, the motorway that connects both.
I like to explore the different soundscapes i encounter, & capture the different elements that intrigue, while attempting to allow the recordings to bring one into that existing space..
