ABC Wednesday - Near Ulverston

Strange sounds were heard on the upland near the small town of Ulverston where usually sheep graze, people walk their dogs and children play.  Strange objects on the top making noises  Boom, bang, clank clink wizz, howl. We were here on Friday when the sky was blue, the sun was warm but not a lot of wind just a
zephyr which meant that the wind was not whistling this corridor but there was still things to hear
and to see
Dancing to the sounds
Or just the closing of eyes and relaxing
But watch out for the UFOs
There is Ulverston clustered down below as the contraptions whirl on Birkrigg Common.

This was Harmonic Fields brought to the area at the beginning of June by Lieux publics (France) as part of the Lakes Alive 2011 events. 500 instruments creating a musical soundscape.  Here is a video from someone who was here here at the weekend on a greyer but windier day

Wow - that is something else - but I am sure those sounds would be ringing in my ears long after my leaving the area - but Ulverston is certainly now on my list of places to go

Unusual and interesting, but I think I wold need earplugs after a while. It's a little unharmonious. Good post for U

Brilliant! I love it and want that in my town too!! Except we have a lot of sand when the wind blows.

Now that is an unusual installation! And this spot upland from Ulverston seems the ideal spot for it. Thanks for including the video.
