If a tree falls but no-one is there to hear it,  will it still make a sound?

The work of Murray Schafer and  others in the 60’s lead to the

founding of the discipline acoustic ecology. Within it they study

mankind and its relationship to its surroundings, mediated

through sound. I’m inspired by acoustic ecology with its focus

on the dynamic relationship inherent in soundscapes around

us. I want to encourage others to listen more carefully to the

worlds around them as it will raise an awareness of how we

relate to, co-create and are affected by the soundscapes

around us, natural and artificial ones.

 

Present woods will make you see with your ears as

it transforms you and the room to another                                   

place and time.
