Cân y Coed Song of the Trees:
Queen Beech Listening Circle
Saturday 8 July, 12.30pm -2pm
Beech Wood – meet at the Information point at 12pm
Imagine if you could listen to the music happening inside a tree? Join environmental sound artist Cheryl Beer in the beauty of the beech wood to hear how she repurposed hearing aid technology to make music with trees from ancient rainforests of Wales, connecting sound, well being and the environment.
Hearing impaired, environmental sound artist and composer Cheryl Beer, has spent the last year working with the ancient Rainforests of Wales, composing music led by the vascular systems of five remaining enclaves. Her work reunites ancient Celtic grounds that would once have been joined together under the soil by the fine feathery threads of mycelium fungus, standing as one magnificent rainforest, yet today, fragmented & fragile. By repurposing hearing aid & sensitive biomedical sound equipment, Cheryl has collated biorhythms created by conductivity deep within trees, ferns & moss, using these readings to unearth & compose a Symphony where every musical note played, is led by the ancient rainforests, themselves.
