“…a most surreal, otherworldly experience……As we walked back down the lane after this ethereal experience, here was a feeling that we had witnessed something fleeting and beautiful. Tonight at the Giant’s Ring you won’t find a new age sound installation. This is the beauty and uniqueness of projects such as this.”

Augustine Leudar, which blends field recordings made in the cloudforest in Veracruz with abstracted elements of folk music, and even sounds the human ear can’t detect that he has made audible by changing the frequency. It is very special.
“The bangs, squeaks, howls and banshee roars mysteriously emanating from copses and tree-clusters, as the promenade around the park develops, are genuinely eerie and unsettling in the mizzly Belfast darkness, the more so for their sources being hidden by Augustine Leudar’s ingenious sound installation.”
Terry Blain, Irish Theatre Magazine
