Sounds of the Forest
Timber Festival (UK) has commissioned cutting edge musicians Erland Cooper, Hinako Omori and Jason Singh to create new music using crowd sourced sounds from forests and woodlands across the world.
The artists will perform live at next year’s Timber Festival in the National Forest, England, in July 2021.
Timber Festival asked its global community to submit one-minute sound recordings of woodlands near where they live to contribute to the first global forest soundmap.
Over 550 people from more than 50 countries have now contributed short audio clips. So far it has sounds from every continent except Antarctica. Anyone can participate by taking a one-minute recording of their own local woodland.
The map also serves as an archive of ecosystems under threat by climate change, recording areas in stress and others being transformed.
The National Forest is the UK’s boldest environmentally led regeneration project, spanning 200 square miles in Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Staffordshire. The central part of the Forest, which covers a former coalfield, has been transformed by the planting of nearly nine million trees over the past three decades.
