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.
