A Year in Sound - Pollardstown Fen. Recordings by the late Tom Lawrence (d. October 2011). "From August of 2010 to July 2011, I set out to capture a moment in time, a phonographic reference based on the concept of A Year on the Fen. An attempt through sound to document, frame and archive the flora and fauna of Pollardstown Fen, Co. Kildare, Ireland. Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring; the twelve-month bio-acoustic lifecycle of one of the last remaining Fens of its kind in Western Europe. Both ultrasonic and infrasonic sound; that within our range of hearing and beyond; the macro and the micro; bog-pulses, calcium springs, subterranean movement, photosynthesis and underwater-life etc. This work attempts to capture the arc of communication that rises and falls with each inhalation and exhalation of nature."
