At the Edge of the Bog: A Day in Three Acts

(The Sunken Hum Volume 2)

by Natalia Beylis

I live in a house set in the middle of a bog that is surrounded by woods which are edged by fields and fairy hills and lakes that fall and rise with the rains. Sometimes the clouds sit gray and heavy like a big blanket in the sky and all the cattle lay in the field, droopy eyed, beneath them. Sometimes the fox sneaks up the driveway and steals the chickens. In autumn, the cows cry back and forth when the farmer takes their calves away. In spring, the elusive cuckoo comes calling for his mate. The tractors rumble all through the warm summer twilight and with winter the fire crackles and the hot water pipes lull and drone. And all through the year the rain plays rhythms everywhere it falls.

All of these tracks are taken from a daily sound diary I kept in 2013 in which I recorded two minutes of my surroundings everyday and then published these to the world. I embarked on this phonographic archive with a voyeuristic curiosity that stemmed from a fascination with how people routinely spend their time. I figured the easiest way to satiate this curiosity was by dissecting my own typical day. On these tracks, I've patched together common sounds from my life in Leitrim (a sparsely populated county in the Northwest of Ireland) in the hopes of creating a tapestry of my day.
