Grand Canal Soundscape : January 2012

I have spent the last two days recording the sounds of Dublin’s Grand Canal; from Portobello Bridge to Leeson Street Bridge. I have always been amazed by the water, since a kid I have beed fascinated by its almighty strength and placid stillness in equal measure. The recording below focusses on a small section of the Canal where swans, boats and humans  all occupy the same serene space amongst the busy back drop of the capital city.
