Living Symphonies is a highly ambitious piece of new music that grows in the same way as a forest ecosystem, portraying the second by-second activity of the forest’s wildlife, plants and atmospheric conditions.
A never-ending symphony of sound unfolds in real-time amongst the canopy, trees and undergrowth providing a remarkable new way for audiences to explore forests with their ears as well as eyes.
