A music project inspired by the swung songs that gates often sing as they swing open and closed.  

The nine-track album was made entirely from field recordings of gates on Inishturk and explores themes of loss, solitude and echoes of the island and surrounding sea.  

Composer and musician Simon Cullen (Ships), performs a live interpretation of this work for the first time in a one-off immersive show in the serene surrounds of the Chapel Royal. Let him transport you to a remote land and seascape off the coast of Co. Mayo.  


Presented by Dublin Fringe Festival.

Supported by the Office of Public Works (OPW) and Dublin Castle.
