> DESCRIPTION

Bernie Krause is a pioneer in the recording of natural soundscapes. Since the late sixties, he has collected hundreds of field recordings of pristine environments from the world over. His recent book, The Great Animal Orchestra, is an account of natural soundscapes and their importance to a thorough understanding of ecology.

It’s been fifteen years since Eoghan has visited his native Donegal, a county in Northern Ireland bordering the Atlantic. Now a sound recordist, the enigmatic Eoghan (played by writer Eoghan Mac Giolla Bhríde) returns to the landscape of his childhood in search of a pristine sonic setting. And so begins an aural journey into the psychogeography of place as Eoghan immerses himself first in the lush, wind-driven lands, then in memory-laden Gaelic culture. Cork-based director Pat Collins has concocted a brooding stew of stunning tableaux, Mac Giolla Bhríde’s self-contained presence, and documentary-like encounters with the people of the rugged North.
