I have been living in - and recording - Belfast since 2010 / Listening to different locations across this city has resulted in material that has ended up in different compositions and projects, but for the most part I have recorded with no particular goal in mind / Inadvertently, what has emerged over time is a personal collection of recordings that document a cross section of the sonic environments of the city; a fraction of the myriad of events and influences that contribute to life in Belfast / A recording for me sometimes uncovers nuances removed from visual bias, providing a fascinating way to navigate a city and a vivid document of a moment in time for whoever happens to come across it / The selected recordings are chosen to reveal just some of the diverse soundscapes that contain details of the communities, architecture, machinery and wildlife that contribute to life in the city and moments that have shaped my own experience of Belfast //

19:49 / July 2, 2013 / Marching Season / Vernon Street / 54.588311, -5.928182 / Loaded with historical significance, few sounds provoke such polarized response during the Belfast summer / Orange bands march throughout the season, the most important occurring on 12th July each year to mark the anniversary of the Battle of the Boyne in 1690 / Trouble regularly flares at flashpoints along contentious routes, though the majority pass without incident / Dissonance is often created by competing bands, and contrast is sharp between shrill fifes, punchy snares and pounding lambeg drums / It is a warm summer evening and a band is filtering through a housing estate on the far side of the train tracks / The ensemble dominates the soundscape for a short time, before fading into the distance, replaced again by the regular rhythms of the street //
