Outer Hebrides

by Ivy Nostrum



Field recordings of the Outer Hebrides, July-August 2021.
Side A starts with an opportunistic recording of the free church in Tarbet, Isle of Harris, followed by a walk around the disused RAF / NATO listening station at RAF Aird Uig, on the western edge of the Isle of Lewis. Ongoing harassment by sea birds prompted a careful but hasty exit.

Side B is a recording of the Stornoway to Ullapool Ferry. The heavy drone of the engines was audible throughout the ship, which was both disconcerting and comforting. Towards the end of this recording I get a bit impatient and start wandering around the ferry.
