In Future Forests

Event Navigation


In Future Forests is an exhibition developed by sound artist and composer Dr Robin Price and University of Birmingham environmental scientist Dr Francis Pope. The collaboration was born out of Robin’s residency at BOM in the Summer of 2016. The work examines the creative possibilities of mapping nature into music, to ask what music might a future forest make?

Using data collected from weather, plant and soil sensors located in the Birmingham Institute of Forest Research’s woodland facility in Staffordshire, this interactive audio-visual sound installation maps real data streams into a musical score.

Presented by BOM and University of Birmingham’s School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences as part of the Art and Science Festival
