Forced rhubarb (extract) - headphones required ! by JezrileyFrench

a short extract from one of several long recordings made in the famous Rhubarb triangle of West Yorkshire. I spent several hours in the heated, unlit growing sheds, listening intently to the fascinating sounds of the rhubarb growing - yes, the small pops & crackles you can hear on here are the actual sound forced rhubarb makes as it grows at super speed.

you will need headphones to really hear the most on this recording....

Have long wanted to hear what a rhubarb shed sounds like inside - this is a great recording!

Bit unnerving though, a trffid plantation might sound like this.

its quite something being sat there in the dark listening to all these pops & cracks !
