Ceol (Ruinsong)

2014, 5 minutes, 16mm

Recorded one afternoon during a visit to the Duntulm Castle on the Isle of Skye, composed in-camera, frame by frame. On the soundtrack you hear a rendition of the earliest known Celtic song, which is supposedly an attempt to mimic a birdsong, which itself may be a mimicry of the sound of a stream.
