Living Symphonies – beautifully atmospheric forest-based installation using AM-1 speakers

)

Living Symphonies is a musical composition which grows in the same way as a forest ecosystem.

Portraying the thriving activity of the forest’s wildlife, plants and atmospheric conditions, it creates a never-ending symphony heard amongst the forest itself. Visitors will be able to experience this unique soundscape through our AM-1 all weather speakers later this year.

Composed and realised by James Bulley and Daniel Jones, Living Symphonies will be taking place across four of England’s forests during Summer 2014. It is produced by Forestry Commission England and Sound And Music, with support from Arts Council England.

Touring throughout the UK, the installation is free to experience and will be appearing for one week at each of the following sites:

1. High Lodge, Thetford Forest, Suffolk, 24 – 30 May 2014

2. Top Lodge, Fineshade Woods, Northamptonshire, 20 – 26 June 2014

3. Birches Valley, Cannock Chase Forest, Staffordshire, 26 July – 1 August 2014

4. Bedgebury National Pinetum & Forest, Kent, 26 – 31 August 2014
