Soundwalk by GERARD GORMLEY
Location: Belvoir Park
Belvoir Park Forest is situated on the outskirts of Belfast City Centre.
Birdsong emanating from the area is oft coloured by the, ever-present, subtle din of traffic noise.
In May 2012, a ‘dawn chorus’ was captured here, traffic noise inaudible.
Listeners are presented with this noise-free version as they approach the park.
The further they delve into the forest, however, the further the audio retreats from reality – exploring harmonic and microsonic textures and rhythms inherent in the vibrant birdsong.
