Field Recordings – Vestmannaeyjar Harbour, Iceland

Over the years I’ve recorded many sounds in different locations around the world. This collection of recordings aims to highlight the unique ‘voices of a place’.

This is a story in itself. A selection of recordings over a period of a day, constructed into a narrative which charts the harbour at Vestmannaeyjar Island at the quiet beginning of the day, the gulls calling in excitement as the fishing boats arrive, then the unloading and repairs take place from the trawlers, the frenzy of activity as the fish are packed on the quayside and then driven away to market, peace once again settling over the water.
